WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is trying to obtain the return of Bowe Bergdahl, believed to be the only U.S. soldier still missing in Afghanistan, but is not engaged in active negotiations with the Taliban to that end, White House spokesman Jay Carney said on Tuesday.
"We can't discuss all the details of our efforts, but there should be no doubt that we work every day using our military, our intelligence and our diplomatic tools to see Sergeant Bergdahl returned home safely," he told reporters at a briefing.
"We are not ... involved in active negotiations with the Taliban," Carney said. "Clearly if negotiations do resume at some point, then we will want to talk with the Taliban about the safe return of Sergeant Bergdahl."
