October 23, 2019 (San Diego’s East County) -- Congresswoman Susan Davis (CA-53), a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, made an unannounced visit to Afghanistan and Jordan with a high-level bipartisan Congressional delegation led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The delegation met with top diplomats, military leaders and troops, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, and King Abdullah II of Jordan.
“I was pleased to be a part of this delegation trip designed to strengthen relationships with our allies and discuss national security issues, especially in light of the deepening crisis in Syria after Turkey’s military incursion and increased violence by the Taliban,” said Rep. Davis, a San Diego Democrat whose district includes portions of East County. “This delegation trip provided members with the latest information on the ground and will inform us as we continue to create U.S. policy toward the region.”
