Pence says 'real progress' in war in Afghanistan

25 Décembre 2017

Ms Janjua expressed concern over the recent statements of Pence and Pentagon, saying Pakistan had eradicated terror safe havens from its territory.

In an exclusive interview with CBS News' Margaret Brennan at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, Vice President Mike Pence vowed the US would stay in Afghanistan for American security.

Within the first two months as President, former President Barack Obama made a surprise visit to Baghdad, and visited Afghanistan a total of four times during his two-term presidency.

Pence, whose trip was unannounced for security reasons, told Ghani and Afghani Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah that he was there as tangible evidence that the United States was "here to see this through".

Dictionary.com doesn't hold back when it comes to chiming in on what goes on in the White House and they definitely had something to say when Vice President Mike Pence gave a speech about President Trump.

The vice president said Trump's new strategy was "already bearing fruit" across the country, citing dramatic increases in American air strikes and a partnership with the Afghan military that has "put the Taliban on the defensive". Pence says that, because of that decision, the USA has been sending more resources and troops into Afghanistan.

The Washington Post crunched the numbers and reported that Pence commended President Trump every 12 seconds for three minutes straight. Pence said he was hopeful that eventually the Taliban "will tire of losing" and will be willing to negotiate a peace deal.

US troops are involved in training Afghan security forces and carrying out counter-terrorism operations, hoping to reverse gains by the Taliban and prod it to negotiate for peace. "One is to wish things away, which I don't think that it happens in the realities of our world".

At Bagram, Pence had sharp words for neighboring Pakistan, echoing previous comments by Trump that accused Islamabad of providing safe harbor to terrorists operating in Afghanistan.

Now the U.S. has repeated the warning to Pakistan from its neighbouring country. In speaking to troops on Thursday, Pence said Trump had put the country "on notice".

"Pakistan has much to gain from partnering with the United States", Pence said. "It has much to lose by continuing to harbour terrorists".

"The armed forces of the United States will remain engaged in Afghanistan until we eliminate the terrorist threat to our homeland, to our people, once and for all", he said.
