KABUL, the panel said on Friday.

Former US ambassador to Afghanistan Ryan Crocker, who was among the witnesses, opposed the recent announcement by the Trump administration.

Despite calls from allies, the Pentagon announces on Tuesday it would withdraw half of 45, 00 US troops in Afghanistan by the end of January.

Crocker warned the committee that the announcement by the Trump administration to withdraw troops would give up US leverage in the country

Members asked questions on the implication of the drawdown, support for US allies, relations with NATO after this announcement and advice for the Biden administration.
