KABUL, Afghanistan, August 22, 2017 – President Trump’s announcement today is a new approach to Afghanistan and the region. Our Afghan partners know that our commitment is strong and enduring.
 
Our future presence will be based on conditions and not arbitrary timelines.
 
This new strategy means the Taliban cannot win militarily. Now is the time to renounce violence and reconcile.
 

A peaceful, stable Afghanistan is victory for the Afghan people and the goal of the Coalition.
