The United States has seen a significant reduction in violence in Afghanistan during the past six days, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Friday, one day before Washington hopes to sign a U.S.-Taliban deal on a U.S. troop withdrawal, Reuters reported.

"We have seen just these last six days a significant reduction in violence in Afghanistan and we are watching closely to see if the Islamic Republic of Iran begins to take even more active measures, active measures that undermine our efforts at peace and reconciliation in Afghanistan," Pompeo told lawmakers.
