President Donald Trump states “peace discussions with Taliban are dead”
US President Donald Trump announced on Monday that discussions with Afghanistan’s Taliban rulers are off and that he was still analyzing a US troop drawdown in the nation.

Months of US discussions with the Taliban militants, who manage huge portions of Afghanistan, stopped on Saturday meanwhile Trump abruptly declared he was withdrawing secret talks at Camp David with the Taliban and the Afghan administrator. The discussions were directed at acquiring a reconciliation agreement to end approximately 20 years of conflict.
Trump stated he understood the talks could not proceed after the Taliban declared stability for an initiative last week that destroyed an American soldier in the metropolis Kabul. Combat has remained in the province as the discussions to end the war took station.
Carrying US flocks home from Afghanistan has been one of Trump’s chief foreign course aims, and the Republican administrator announced his ministry was still thinking about a drawdown of the 14,000 US soldiers in the nation.
“We’d like to get out but we’ll get out at the right time,” he stated.
