U.S. says committed to seeking Afghan reconciliation
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House said on Thursday it remains committed to supporting a reconciliation process in Afghanistan, despite the Taliban's announcement that it was suspending nascent peace talks with the United States.
"We support an Afghan-led process toward reconciliation. There is no likely resolution to the conflict in Afghanistan without a political resolution," White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters.
He denied Taliban accusations that U.S. statements had been erratic and insisted that Washington had been consistent in its message.
