US trying to save lives of both Afghans and American soldiers

16 Apr 2019 Raha Press

Speaking at an event at

Texas A&M University, Pompeo said he spoke in the morning with Ambassador

Zalmay Khalilzad, who, he said, was working to bring peace in Afghanistan.

“We’re trying to end the

longest war in United States history and save the lives of Afghans and American

soldiers alike,” Pompeo said.

Khalilzad has held multiple

rounds of talks with the Taliban, with the sides reporting progress on

preventing Afghanistan from being used by terrorist groups and troop

withdrawal.

The envoy has rejected

reports that the latest round of talks began in Doha on Monday.

“Don’t believe reports that

I’m in Doha. I’m enjoying a windy spring day in DC,” Khalilzad said on Twitter.

He said that he met with

Turkish President’s Chief Advisor in Washington.

“Appreciate Turkey’s

commitment to Afghanistan. Turkey’s willingness to support the Afghan peace

process is welcome,” Khalilzad said.
