Information chart: on December 30, 2015 local time, the funeral of Joseph lemm, a New York police agent and Air National Guard sergeant, was held in New York, USA. Lemm was killed in a suicide bomber attack near Bagram Air Force Base in Afghanistan.

The death toll from military operations in 2019 exceeded 13 in 2018 and 11 in 2017.

Peace talks between the United States and the Taliban stalled in September 2019, when President trump canceled meetings with the Taliban and Afghan leaders.

Trump has considered reducing the number of troops in Afghanistan to 8600. He told advisers that he hoped to withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan by November 2020. He also threatened to close the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, complaining that it was too big and expensive.

For months, the number of U.S. troops in Afghanistan has been a source of tension between trump and Senate Republicans. Republican lawmakers have repeatedly warned trump not to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan while the Taliban remain a threat.

A year ago, the Senate passed a resolution drafted by Senate Majority Leader McConnell, which warned that the hasty withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria or Afghanistan could endanger hard won achievements and the national security of the United States.
