No compromise on withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan: Taliban

No compromise on withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan: Taliban”

A day earlier, Trump had said that, while us troop levels in war-ravaged Afghanistan were being cut, the United States would continue to maintain a military presence in the country even after a peace deal with the Taliban is reached.

Despite the talks, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation on August 30 reported a new fatality among its troops, saying a U.S. service member had been killed in Afghanistan, barely a week after two U.S. Army Green Berets were killed in combat.

The death comes as the USA and the Taliban continue to seek an agreement in Doha that would see thousands of American troops leave Afghanistan in return for various security guarantees.

Trump made the comment in a phone interview with Fox News Radio on Thursday. The peace plan is expected to formalize a significant withdrawal of U.S. forces after almost 18 years of war.

Trump also noted in the interview that the United States is getting close to making a deal with the Taliban but he doesn't know that it's going to happen.

Trump admitted the US will always have a presence in Afghanistan.

Shaheen told BBC Pashto radio that they are holding talks with the United States negotiators to "end invasion of Afghanistan".

The service member killed Thursday was not immediately identified, in keeping with U.S. Department of Defense policy withholding the names until 24 hours after notification of next of kin.

Trump also repeated a previous talking point, calling Afghanistan the "Harvard University of Terrorism" given its "rough, mountainous terrain". The news comes just a day after President Trump announced there would "always" be a U.S. presence in the country.

Meanwhile, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid denied a purported draft of peace agreement between the Taliban and the U.S. posted online by a section of Afghan media.
