WICHITA, KS - Congressman Ron Estes (R-Kansas) issued the following statement following President Trump's Afghanistan and South Asia policy address:

"It is vitally important for the U.S. to fight for stability within Afghanistan and South Asia. Today, there are twenty terrorist groups that operate out of Afghanistan and Pakistan, which is higher than any other region in the world," said Rep. Estes. "The president's strategy, which focuses primarily on achieving stability within Afghanistan and the region, will go a long way to ensure that it does not become a safe haven for Islamists terror groups who wish to do us harm."

Ron Estes is a 5th generation Kansan and represents Kansas' 4th congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives. He serves on the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, and the House Committee on Homeland Security.
