The article goes on to state the following:
Shanahan reportedly met with Afghan military leaders, and was set to talk with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani. He stressed that Ghani’s government should have a central role in peace talks, though the Taliban has thus far refused to negotiate with the Afghan leader, the AP noted.
