Secretary of State Rex Tillerson doubled down on the President’s new Afghan strategy from the State Department on Tuesday, saying we can turn the tide on losing the battle, and that the Taliban will not win.
Tillerson said the U.S. will work with regional allies Pakistan and India, but that they must reject terrorism.
He briefly mentioned North Korea, saying he sees a path to dialogue with the rogue nation since they recently showed some level of restraint.
Tillerson’s comments come after the top commander in the Middle East said new U.S. troops will arrive in Afghanistan within days, or weeks.
