US Afghan Policy Not Aimed to Restore Security

The US administration's policy on Afghanistan is meant to preserve its foothold in Afghanistan, which hinges on a lasting insecurity in the insurgency-racked country, a lawmaker said.
Trump has said he is committed to a prolonged US military presence in Afghanistan as long as there is "determination and progress" in the South Asian country.
He has signaled he will send more troops to Afghanistan, while accusing its nuclear power southern neighbor Pakistan of providing terrorists with a "safe haven".
Commenting on Trump's new wide-ranging Kabul strategy, Mohammad Reza Amirhassankhani said, "The US has never intended to help restore security to Afghanistan, so it could maintain a presence there and continue draining its resources."
"Had the American presence been really meant to help the Afghan security, we would not be witnessing the operation of dozens of terrorist groups there," he stressed in a recent talk with ICANA.
