Official Photo by Michael Steel(WASHINGTON) -- While the U.S. struggles to complete a bilateral security agreement with Afghanistan, House Speaker John Boehner has concluded his first trip there as speaker of the House.

Boehner and several other senior GOP members of the U.S. House of Representatives met with American troops, as well as Ambassador James B. Cunningham and General Joseph F. Dunford

“The delegation sent a strong, unequivocal message that the House of Representatives wants to maintain a right-sized presence in Afghanistan to successfully complete the work that has been done to date, and to honor the sacrifice of thousands of troops and civilians, as well as their families,” a statement from Boehner’s office reads.

Boehner previously visited Afghanistan prior to the Republicans’ capturing the House majority.
