"The brave men and women of the Afghan National Defence and Security Forces and the people of Afghanistan have my personal assurance that we remain committed to our Afghan partners and our mission in Afghanistan.
"The United States and the NATO-led Resolute Support are firm in our resolve to create a secure, stable and peaceful Afghanistan.
"All too often it is clear that the enemies of Afghanistan offer nothing for the future of this beautiful country and its people.
"Our mission is to stand with the Afghan security forces and Afghan people, and to support them in the fight against terrorism, our common enemy.
"We will carry out that mission and we will remain steadfast.”
