Tillerson meets with Afghanistan president

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson visited Kabul on Monday in a brief, unannounced trip that had been shrouded in secrecy amid an uptick of violence in the Afghan capital.

Tillerson, who was on the ground for just over two hours, met with President Ashraf Ghani, according to the U.S. Embassy and pool reports. The secretary of state then departed for Doha, Qatar.

The visit is part of Tillerson's week-long trip to the Middle East, South Asia and Europe.
