US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Monday that he would present options on Afghanistan to President Donald Trump "very soon," saying the strategy would take a regional approach rather than looking at the war-torn country in isolation.

"We are taking a regional approach to this. ... We will take that forward to the president for a decision very soon," Mattis told the House Armed Services Committee.

Reuters reported in late April that Trump's administration was carrying out a review of Afghanistan and conversations were revolving around sending between 3,000 and 5,000 US and coalition troops to Afghanistan.
