Welch to visit Afghanistan

Posted: Updated:

Vermont Congressman Peter Welch is headed to Afghanistan.

Welch will leave Sunday as part of a congressional oversight trip. The bipartisan group of lawmakers will meet Afghan leaders, American diplomats and U.S. soldiers for a progress report on ending the war in Afghanistan.

This is Welch's sixth trip to the region since he took office in 2007.

The delegation will also make stops in Pakistan and in Turkey to discuss the civil war in Syria and the related refugee crisis.
