Russia thinks Trump's new Afghan strategy will not bring benefits -Ifax

MOSCOW, Aug 22 (Reuters) - Russia does not believe that U.S. President Donald Trump’s new strategy on Afghanistan will lead to any significant positive changes in the country, the Interfax news agency cited an unnamed Russian Foreign Ministry source as saying on Tuesday.

Trump on Monday committed the United States to an open-ended conflict in Afghanistan, reversing course from his campaign pledges and signalling he would send troops to America’s longest war in “a fight to win.” (Reporting by Andrew Osborn; Editing by Katya Golubkova)
