Chambliss Issues Statement on Talks with Taliban – WSAV: News, Weather, and Sports for Savannah, GA

SAVANNAH, GA — U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss of Georgia reacted Tuesday to the announcement that the United States and the Taliban will hold talks aimed at finding a political solution after nearly 12 years of war in Afghanistan.

Chambliss is against any meetings with the Taliban. He released a statement saying “Despite the remarkable progress made by the U.S. military over the last 12 years, the Taliban have regained their strength and remain unwilling to make any real commitment to cease hostilities. Given their resilience and ongoing resistance, I am concerned any attempt to restart negotiations will once again become one-sided and will do nothing to further our interests in preventing terrorism against the United States and our allies. Until the Taliban confirm, not just in words but in action, that they have renounced all terrorist activity and support, we should not reward them by participating in any reconciliation efforts.”
