After Trump Rejects Talks, Afghanistan Says Taliban Must Be Defeated On The Battlefield

Description

On Tuesday, Afghanistan said that the Taliban would have to be defeated on the battlefield after United States President Donald Trump rejected the possibility of talks with the militants following a series of deadly attacks. On Monday, Trump condemned the militant group for recent attacks in Kabul and pledged to "finish what we have to finish." The statement suggests that Trump sees a future military victory over the Taliban, an outcome that military and diplomatic officials claim cannot be realized with the resources and manpower the president has authorized.

General John Nicholson told reporters, "The Taliban cannot win on the battlefield, it's time for them to join the peace process.
