U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley said Wednesday that the Trump administration's policy in Afghanistan is working, saying talks between the government and Taliban extremists, and a peace process, are closer than ever before.President Donald Trump's plan for Afghanistan aims at ending America's longest war and eliminating a rising extremist threat in the country.It involves shifting away from a "time-based" approach to fighting the war to instead put emphasis on linking U.S. assistance to concrete results and cooperation from the Afghan government. It includes sending up to 3,900 more U.S. troops on top of the 8,400 Americans that former President Barack Obama left in Afghanistan.In August, the U.S. infuriated Pakistan by accusing it of providing a haven for extremist groups that carry out attacks in neighboring Afghanistan.
