US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis says President Donald Trump has a made a decision on the United States' strategy for Afghanistan after a sufficiently rigorous review process.

However, Mattis did not provide details on when the White House would make an announcement or what the decision was on Afghanistan, where fighting still rages more than 15 years after U.S. forces invaded and overthrew a Taliban government.

U.S. officials told Reuters that soon after taking office the Trump administration began a review of U.S. policy on Afghanistan, which has expanded into a broader South Asia review.
