Administration's South Asia Strategy on Afghanistan, Hearing Before the Committee on Foreign Relations, United States Senate, One Hundred Fifteenth Congress, Second Session, February 6, 2018   [open pdf - 4MB]

This is the February 6, 2018 hearing "Administration's South Asia Strategy on Afghanistan" held before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. From the opening statement of Bob Corker: "In rolling out its new South Asia strategy last August, the administration underscored the United States' hard-fought security gains in Afghanistan and reiterated our commitment to helping establish a foundation for political resolution. With the recent reports of shrinking government control of territory, continued high attrition of Afghan forces, and deadly attacks in Kabul by Haqqani and ISIS [Islamic State] Khorasan, it is clear that foundation is a long way off. [...] U.S. Commander General Nicholson says he now has what he needs to assist Afghans in achieving a sustainable outcome for Afghanistan and the region. [...] I welcome our witnesses and hope to hear more specifics of this strategy, especially in the area of economic and personal diplomacy in order to make the most of military gains General Nicholson projects." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John J. Sullivan and Randall G. Schriver.
