The United States says Afghan government forces are consolidating their positions in urban centers of the country.

The Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley at a news conference in Washington said the Taliban appear to have the strategic momentum in their sweeping offensives but they have none of the country's densely populated main cities.

Milley said the chance of a negotiated political settlement is still out there.
