US President Donald Trump paid a surprise visit to Afghanistan for Thanksgiving.

He announced that peace talks were taking place between the US and the Taliban.

He spent the first two hours of his trip serving turkey and thanking the troops and then sat down with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.

He stated that the Taliban want to make a deal following heavy US fire.

The number of troops in Afghanistan has been reduced to 8,600 as a result.
