UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said on Saturday his country was seeking a political deal with the Taliban but would not accept any deal just because it was overshadowed by a wave of violence.
“The United States believes that the best way to make progress is to reach a political agreement and this is what we are working hard to achieve now and that does not mean we will accept any agreement,” Esper told a news conference in Paris with his French counterpart.
“We will work towards a good agreement, a good enough agreement, even to ensure that the security of our two countries is strengthened and a brighter course opens for the Afghan people,” he said.
