Peace Talks with Taliban Are 'Dead'

Peace Talks with Taliban Are 'Dead'

Days earlier he cancelled secret talks with Afghan and Taliban officials in the United States in the wake of a auto bombing carried out by the militant group in Kabul that killed 12 people, including a us soldier. "I didn't discuss it with anybody else".

Under a peace deal, the USA would have withdrawn its troops mainly in exchange for Taliban assurances that it will not allow Afghanistan to become a haven for terrorist groups like al-Qaeda and the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL).

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani reiterated, however, his commitment to the people-owned peace process amid the breakup of the US-Taliban peace talks. "At a certain point you have to say that's long enough". "We'd like to get out, but we'll get out at the right time".

"If Trump wants to stop talks, we will take the first way, and they will soon regret it", the spokesman added.

Almost 18 years after losing his brother-in-law on 9/11, Jim McCaffrey welcomes any effort to resolve the war in Afghanistan and credits Trump with trying to end it.

For Phoenix's part, playing such an iconic character took some convincing. "He didn't ask me, he told me". Who wrote the score for Joker? The Joker and Batman have been making the headlines respectively.

Sen. Bob Menendez, ranking Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, said of the meeting, "It's another example of the Trump administration's foreign policy, which is a high-wire act that ultimately is focused on Trump as a persona, but not in the strategic, methodical effort of creating peace". His discovery of this foundational problem came when Khalilzad and the Taliban had all but stitched up an agreement to facilitate fulfilment of Trump's election promise - withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan.

Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger, an Air Force pilot who served in Iraq and Afghanistan before winning a seat in the House of Representatives, said on Twitter, "Never should leaders of a terrorist organization that hasn't renounced 9/11 and continue in evil be allowed in our great country".

US President Donald Trump said on Monday peace negotiations with the Taliban were "dead" and though he was still looking at a drawdown of American troops in Afghanistan, he would order it only "at the right time". Trump has called their continued presence there "ridiculous".

"Over the last four days, we have been hitting our Enemy harder than at any time in the last ten years!" he wrote in a tweet.

"Our way is clear".

Judd hopes the Afghan government - which has been largely sidelined from the negotiations - and civilians will have a role in a broader peace process that would produce a durable cease-fire.
