Isahmudin Helmandi, the provincial police chief said: “The people want security, they can see the improvements, they support the police.”

“We will help you from Kabul but we expect to see results; Results in what you are doing to serve the people,” Afghan Deputy Defense Minister Yasin Zia said.

Miller said: “I am very focused on protecting the security forces and civilians. I want to say thank you to the leaders of Helmand. I know the difficulties but I know what you have achieved and I want to congratulate you for that. And the Taliban know what you have achieved. Resolute Support is firmly in support of what you do.”
