Business Insider reports:

ice President Mike Pence has made an unannounced trip to Afghanistan to meet with Afghan leaders and visit US troops.

Pence arrived in Afghanistan four months after President Donald Trump outlined a new strategy to break the stalemate in America’s longest war.

Pence’s surprise visit is the first to the war-torn country by either Trump or the vice president. Pence landed at Bagram Air Base under heavy security on Thursday.

He met with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, as well as US troops and US military leaders.

Trump released his new strategy for ending the 16-year war in Afghanistan in August. The president said US troops would “fight to win” by attacking enemies and crushing terrorists.
