U.S. President George W. Bush said Tuesday that the United States was making "good progress" in Afghanistan, despite a weekend Taliban attack on a parade attended by Afghan President Hamid Karzai and international envoys.

"I think we are making progress but there is a very resilient enemy," Bush told a press conference held at the White House.

"I will tell you now that we're making progress in Afghanistan, but there is tough fighting. I am under no illusions this is not tough, I know we are dealing with a determined enemy," Bush said.

Three people were killed when militants opened fire on Afghan leaders and international representatives who were attending a military parade in Kabul on Sunday.

U.S. President George W. Bush responds to a question as he holds a news conference in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington April 29, 2008.


The Taliban, who have launched counter-attacks on the U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan, claimed responsibility for the attack that also injured about 10 people.
