US special representative on Afghan peace process Zalmay Khalilzad has said that America will reduce the cost of war in Afghanistan.

After a meeting with the new chairman of US joint chief of staff general Mark Milley, Khalilzad twitted: “We agreed that a political settlement that safeguards the homeland from terrorist threats, allows us to reduce the burden of war & protects two decades of progress in Afghanistan is in our national interest.”
The remarks come as the US president Donald Trump stalled the peace talks with Taliban in September.
