Pentagon officials are watching the Taliban’s sweeping advances in Afghanistan “with deep concern” and are encouraging its Afghan partners to “step up” and defend their country amid the pullout of U.S. forces, Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said Sunday.
With the Taliban claiming to have taken control of 85% of Afghanistan – a claim that U.S. government officials dispute – Kirby told “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace that the Pentagon was “not unmindful” of the situation.
The article goes on to state the following:
Kirby said that officials are monitoring the Taliban’s movements in the country and were working with the Afghan military “to encourage them to use the capacity and the capability that we know they have, and we know that they know how to defend their country.”
“We’re certainly watching with deep concern, Chris, the deteriorating security situation and the violence which is of course way too high, and the advances and the momentum that the Taliban seems to have right now,” Kirby said.
The press secretary said Afghanistan has a “very capable” Air Force and “very sophisticated” Special Forces to combat Taliban resurgence, adding that “this is a time for them to step up and to do exactly that.”
“We are not walking away from this relationship,” Kirby said for the US and Afghanistan. “We’re going to continue to support them from a financial perspective, logistical perspective and certainly aircraft maintenance.”
