Pompeo to discuss Afghanistan peace deal with NATO’s Stoltenberg

Pompeo will talk about Afghanistan with the alliance's Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Tuesday. The meeting comes a day after the US envoy, who has led efforts to strike a deal with the Taliban to end 18 years of war, showed the draft peace agreement to the Kabul government.
Under the deal, the US would withdraw troops from five bases in Afghanistan within about four months of it being approved, provided the Taliban stick to their commitments, AFP said.
President Donald Trump last week said America would maintain a permanent presence there – with 8,600 troops initially – in any event.
