The commander of US forces and the Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan Gen. Scott Miller says that the fighting in the country will continue until a political settlement.
“This fight will go until a political settlement,” he told CNN when asked whether the Afghan campaign against the Taliban had reached a stalemate. “These are two sides that are fighting against one another, and neither one of them will achieve a military victory at this stage.”
Miller’s statement shows that US efforts to reach a deal with the Taliban have not reached any significant progress so far. One of the Taliban’s main demands is a full withrawal of US troops from the war-torn country.
