USA service member killed, 2 wounded in 'apparent insider attack' in Afghanistan

Pompeo said the peace process would be Afghan-led but added that the U.S. would be prepared to participate to help resolve differences and said support from neighboring countries would also be needed.

The visit, at the end of a tour of Asian countries including North Korea and Vietnam, was Pompeo's first to Afghanistan since he became Secretary of State in April. The UAE is highly suspicious of Iran and welcomed President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the US from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.

"The strategy sent a clear message to the Taliban, they can not wait us out", Pompeo said.

TOLOnews reporter Shabeer Ahmadi says that the head of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Yousef bin Ahmad Al-Othaimeen said that activities are ongoing in Afghanistan which are not in accordance with Islam. The DoD report also said that NATO Resolute Support advisers are working to require better national screening for Afghan security forces personnel. "We call on all of our partners to continue this support", he said. "And we are beginning to see the results both on the battlefield, the Taliban's momentum is slowing and in the prospect of peace with them", added Pompeo. "They're deeply connected to President Trump's strategy". We saw the Taliban respond to the ceasefire that President Ghani put in place.

Meanwhile, the OIC said in a statement on Monday that delegates will also hold discussions on the issue of terrorism.

The said insider attack was supposedly carried out by a member of the Afghan security force. "That is certainly the case, and the American role will be important in this. We can't settle this from the outside", he said. As Pompeo's remarks indicated, the Taliban is an indigenous problem for Kabul to resolve with American support, all the more so if Pakistan truly gets serious about controlling its border region. The Taliban said the attacker acted on his own, but added that it "appreciated" his murderous efforts.

Pompeo stated that part of President Trump's South Asian strategy was to remove "artificial timelines and arbitrary troop ceilings".
