The United States are trying to reduce losses in Afghanistan and to cut military expenses, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in an interview with Fox News.

He added that Washington is committed to preventing the use of Afghanistan’s territory against the U.S.

“The mission the president gave us to do two things, to see if we can reduce our cost which has been tens and tens of billions of dollars a year in Afghanistan and we lose the lives of American young men and women every year to reduce that risk, but at the same time, ensure that we maintain a posture that can reduce the risk that there is an attack again from Afghanistan to our homeland,” Mr. Pompeo said. 

Speaking about the rumors about the US forces withdraw from Afghanistan, Pompeo said that any decision regarding the issue will be conditions-based.
