US service member killed in ‘insider attack’ in Afghanistan

US service member killed in ‘insider attack’ in Afghanistan

"The Pakistanis, too, need to understand that we need to have a set of elections [in Afghanistan] that do not have violence", he said. The Taliban said the attacker acted on his own, but added that it "appreciated" his murderous efforts.

"A regional consensus Mr. Secretary is in the process of emerging".

Pompeo's stop in the capital Kabul, his first since becoming Secretary of State, comes toward the end of a week-long trip that began in North Korea and Vietnam, and is slated to conclude in Brussels with NATO discussions from July 10-12.

The report said President Barack Obama's decision to send 50,000 more USA troops to clear the most risky parts of Afghanistan of insurgents in 2009 and 2010 contributed to the overall failure. But the Taliban ignored calls for extending the ceasefire and engaging in peace talks, and it has since returned to the battlefield with more intensity inflicting heavy casualties on Afghan security forces and seizing new territory.

"If we think only in one day, a 40-year crisis can be ended we are being unrealistic", Ghani told Pompeo.

In an unannounced visit to Afganistan, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo left a clear message to the Taliban: "They can not wait us out".

Abdullatif AL-Asheikh offered Saudi Arabia's support to Afghanistan, saying: "The Kingdom was and still is the best support for its brothers in the Islamic world".

The 119-page report underlines U.S. efforts to end its longest war with a combination of military and diplomatic efforts and recognises the key role that Pakistan can play in achieving this target. The relatively peaceful interlude yielded some reports of positive contact between Taliban fighters, Afghan government forces, and civilians, but also included two suicide bombings, one of which was claimed by the Islamic State. "We call on all of our partners to continue this support", he said.

Religious scholars from Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Egypt and other Muslim countries were also attending the conference.

"We think each of those is greatly increased as a result of the strategy that President Trump laid out now nearly 12 months ago", he said.
