Secretary of Defense James Mattis is urging the international community to help bring an end to the war in Afghanistan.

“In Afghanistan, it’s approaching 40 years;” he told reporters on Monday. “Forty years is enough and it’s time for everyone to get on board, support the United Nations, support (India’s) Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi, support President (Ashraf) Ghani (of Afghanistan) and all those who are trying to maintain peace and make for a better world here. So, we are on that track.” 

His comments were reported by the Afghan media outlet Tolo News.

The Hill noted the U.S. has maintained a military presence in the country since 2001 when the Taliban government was removed from power. The nation has been in conflict since the late 70s.
