WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States has not agreed on any timeline to pull U.S. troops from Afghanistan, a U.S. State Department spokesperson said on Wednesday, adding that it would look at potential changes to its military presence “as conditions allow.”

“We have not agreed to any timeline for a possible drawdown of troops and are not going to get into any other specific details of diplomatic conversations,” the spokesperson said in a statement.
