Rep. John Kline returned from a five-day trip to Afghanistan on Wednesday, where he and five other congressmen met with military officials and U.S. troops to discuss the ongoing conflict.

The delegation spent most of its fact-finding tour in Kabul and Kandahar, where they talked with officials about reconstruction efforts and training the Afghanistan army and police, among other issues.

The trip was Kline’s fifth to Afghanistan and his seventh to the region, said his spokesman, Troy Young.

Kline, who is a member of the House Armed Services Committee, was accompanied by Republicans Duncan Hunter of California and Dave Reichert of Washington, and Democrats Larry Kissell of North Carolina, Martin Heinrich of New Mexico and Frank Kratovil of Maryland.
