Miller said that the Taliban’s expansion of violence makes it difficult to achieve peace.
He said that the Taliban will not be able to win the war militarily, and should stop the violence.
“Coalition or US air forces are there to support and–when required–defend the Afghan security forces under attack,” said Miller.
In a question about the Taliban’s potential offensive on major Afghan cities and Kabul, Miller said that such a move by the Taliban will not be acceptable to the Afghan people or the international community.
“That is something we shouldn’t see the Taliban trying to do if, in fact, we’re committed to a political settlement if we see that type of activity that calls into question all the work that has been done with the intra-Afghan discussions down in Doha and certainly with the international community desires as we go forward,” said Miller.
Miller said that financial support and maintenance support are among the commitments that will continue to the Afghan government forces after the foreign troops withdrawal.
