Vice President Mike Pence made an unannounced trip to Afghanistan on Thursday, thanking several hundred troops for their service ahead of the Christmas holiday while reiterating to Afghan leaders America’s commitment to lasting peace and security in the region.
The trip was kept secret for safety reasons until after he arrived.
Speaking in front of a 40-foot-tall American flag, the vice president told the troops that the United States is “making real progress,” and that they’ve “put the Taliban on the offensive.”
“I believe victory is closer than ever before,” Pence said. “I believe with all my heart that Afghanistan will be free.”
