Afghanistan peace talks are 'dead'

Afghanistan peace talks are 'dead'”

Over the weekend, plans to host a Taliban delegation in the U.S. were cancelled after the militant group took credit for a suicide auto bombing in Kabul that killed twelve, including a U.S. soldier.

"They're dead as far as I'm concerned", Trump told reporters.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told Al Jazeera that Trump would regret turning his back on peace talks.

However then on Saturday, Trump revealed that he had cancelled an unprecedented assembly between the Taliban and himself at storied Camp David.

'Over the past 4 days, now we have been hitting our Enemy tougher than at any time within the final ten years!,' he wrote in a tweet.

In the meantime, the Taliban have taken hold of another two districts in Afghanistan's northern Takhar province, near the country's border with Tajikistan, local officials said on Tuesday.

There was also widespread consternation at the characteristically unpredictable manner of Trump's negotiating style. Nevertheless, the war "remains at a stalemate", a top USA watchdog agency reported last month.

Tallon wants USA troops home, and she really wants the US government to do more to probe allegations, which she and others have raised in a lawsuit, that Saudi government employees knowingly assisting the hijacking plot.

Last month, however, the president conceded that there would be no complete withdrawal of American forces from Afghanistan, saying the United States would "always" have to keep an eye on the Taliban.

Trump has cited the death of a US service member in one of those blasts as the reason why he now calls the US-Taleban talks "dead".

As [the] president of the United States has announced [the] suspension of negotiations with the Islamic Emirate [Taliban], this will harm America more than anyone else.

Such a reaction towards a single attack just before the signing of an agreement displays lack of composure and experience.

Stressing that attacks on voters and polling stations are "clear violations of global law", Yamamoto urged the Taliban to withdraw its threat.

A plume of smoke rose early Wednesday over Kabul.

Some questioned the idea of hosting Taliban officials in the United States so close to the 18th September 11, 2001, anniversary.

Acknowledging that a military victory is unattainable at this juncture, the Trump administration deemed the peace negotiations the primary tenet of its strategy to end the almost 18-year-old war in Afghanistan. A USA -led invasion of Afghanistan shortly after the 2001 attack toppled the Taliban, who had harbored Osama bin Laden, the al-Qaida leader and attacks mastermind.
