As Ghani nixes trip, U.S. assures Afghans it would sign ‘good deal’

As Ghani nixes trip, U.S. assures Afghans it would sign ‘good deal’”

The Taliban consider the elected Afghan government a "puppet" or "proxy" of the US.

"I immediately cancelled the meeting and called off peace negotiations", continued Mr Trump. "They didn't, they only made it worse".

According to the Defense Department, Sgt. 1st Class Elis A. Barreto Ortiz, 34, from Morovis, Puerto Rico, was killed in action when the explosive device detonated near his vehicle, being the fourth USA service member killed in Afghanistan over the past two weeks.

That Trump was citing Taliban violence and the death of a United States soldier to pull out of the peace talks suggests it is a "tactical move" than abandoning search for a peace deal to USA forces to draw down and exit, Sibal said.

The Taliban group claimed responsibility for a auto bombing in Kabul city on Thursday which killed at least 11 people and wounded 43 others. Congressman Eric Swalwell tweeted at Trump on Saturday: "You brought the Taliban to the United States the week of September 11?"

In June, the Taliban issued a threat to Afghan media, saying journalists will be targeted unless news outlets stopped broadcasting what they described as government propaganda against the insurgents.

Pompeo said Trump had not decided whether he would still withdraw USA troops - but warned the Taliban of renewed military pressure if they keep up attacks.

The Afghanistan conflict is the longest running the U.S. has been involved in and has cost more than 2300 American lives.

After news emerged of the Camp David scenario, Trump was criticized for having planned to host on USA soil a militant group that has killed US troops and sheltered al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden after the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States.

The blast in Kabul that killed a dozen of people, including an American soldier, shows that there is no point in negotiating with the Taliban who can't even uphold a ceasefire during important talks, President Trump has claimed.

Meanwhile, Ben Wallace, UK Minister of Defense, said that both governments will make sure whatever happens it is not going to be at the cost of security of the United States, the UK and their allies.

The Taliban controls much of Farah Province going into this fight.

It added that both sides had been preparing for the deal to be announced and signed when Trump tweeted late Saturday that he had "called off peace negotiations".

Taliban officials usually ever explain remorse or error after attacks that hurt civilians, despite the incontrovertible fact that they in total give them militia rationales.

Afghanistan's internationally recognized president, Ashraf Ghani, had been outspoken in his criticism of the shape of the withdrawal agreement with the Taliban, who have refused to negotiate with his government. They were reportedly driving to attend a media workshop when they were abducted in Zurmat, a district of Paktia controlled by the Taliban.

But Afghanistan remains unsafe and some US presence is needed, he said.
