 U.S. defense chief: U.S. forces stationed abroad suspend deployment for 60 days and stop all action plans


On March 25 local time, U.S. Defense Secretary mark esper issued a stop operation order to the U.S. military, asking all U.S. troops stationed abroad to stop all travel and action plans. Novel coronavirus pneumonia will be transmitted to US forces in the maximum 60 days.

The purpose of this order is to make sure that we dont take the virus home, spread it to others, or spread it in the military, esper said.

The measure is the most extensive defense order of the U.S. military so far. However, the drawdown of the U.S. military in Afghanistan will not be interfered with and personnel withdrawal will continue.
