According to the commander of the Resolute Support Mission (RSM), peace talks with the Taliban could go either way and NATO troops must be ready for any outcome.
General Scott Miller has reportedly told NATO troops to be ready for any outcome in peace talks between Washington and the Taliban.

Speaking before troops at RS headquarters in Kabul on January 1, Miller warned of preparing for both “positive processes or negative consequences,” according to Reuters.
“Peace talks [are] out there, regional players pressing for peace, the Taliban talking about peace, the Afghan government is talking about peace,” he said.
“Are [the RS] able to adapt? Are we able to adjust? Are we able to be in the right place to support positive processes and negative consequences, that’s what I ask you guys to think about in 2019,” he added.

This comes as US troops drawdown in Afghanistan had been earlier signaled but the US president Donald Trump vowed he has not ordered pentagon about troops withdrawal.
