Trump Calls Afghanistan War ‘Unfortunate’ and ‘Ridiculous’

\WASHINGTON – US President Donald Trump said that the war in Afghanistan was “unfortunate” and “ridiculous” as he met with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg at the White House on Tuesday.
Trump, however, said that a lot of positive things are happening in Afghanistan recently.
“I think we’ve made a lot of great strides recently in Afghanistan. It’s — we call it the ‘endless war’. Nineteen years. The real number is 19 years. It’s unfortunate. It’s ridiculous. And it’s been a very interesting period of time,” Trump said.
“But we’ve made a lot of strides. A lot of things are happening in Afghanistan that are very positive. So, we’ll see how that all comes out. And I appreciate your help,” Trump said.
Washington has held multiple rounds of peace negotiations with the Taliban and the sides have cited developments on preventing Afghanistan from being used by terrorist groups and foreign troop pull-out.
During the meeting with Trump, Stoltenberg said that NATO allies strongly believe that it is “important to support the US efforts to find a peaceful solution to the crisis or the war in Afghanistan.”
