Taliban vows to fight on after Trump says talks are 'dead'

Taliban vows to fight on after Trump says talks are 'dead'”

The process and product of President Donald Trump's policy on Afghanistan is deeply flawed. They said it loud and clear'. "President Trump said enough".

"Competing versions of what led to the cancellation of the meeting and, at least temporarily, any further U.S. -Taliban negotiations, exposed internal administration tensions that have flared as a deal seemed near in recent weeks". It has also led to questions about what might come next.

Trump has promised to end US involvement in Afghanistan. But while the Taliban's attacks last week, including on multiple other Afghan cities, drew widespread global condemnation, the setback to Trump's plans for a deal with the group hasn't elicited any mourning in most world capitals. He ticks off a list of atrocities, including bombings in Kabul that ostensibly targeted security forces but killed civilians.

MARTIN: We're joined now in studio by Laurel Miller.

"Obviously, the attack was very tragic, but you have to look at this against the backdrop of ongoing violence in Afghanistan over all the months of negotiation, almost a year now", Miller says in an interview with NPR's Rachel Martin. "And so there's really no reason to believe that this latest attack was uniquely the reason for calling it off". The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack.

In the meantime, the State Division drew consideration to an increase in USA -backed Afghan authorities assaults towards the Taliban and stepped-up US airstrikes. How many more decades are they willing to fight?'.

"As far as I am concerned, they are dead", Trump told reporters at the White House. "And the alternative was the White House, and you wouldn't have been happy with that either". The withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan was a key campaign pledge for Trump, and one his team has worked hard to achieve over the past two years.

CROCKER: Well, as I scrambled to find some silver lining here, it may be that it has put an end to these talks in their current phase, giving us an opportunity to work with our allies, starting with the Afghan government, for a very different approach.

"In our view, it only remains to be signed in a ceremony in the presence of worldwide witnesses and the media".

The US has recalled the special envoy for Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, to chart the path forward, Mr Pompeo said during an interview on Fox. The Afghan government objected to this agreement on the grounds that America had negotiated for the release of thousands of Taliban prisoners in Afghan prisons even though the Taliban refused to reciprocate with a wide-scale ceasefire. The talks are "dead", Trump now says.

They also said their "struggle. will continue until the foreign occupation is finished and the Afghans are given a chance to live by their own choice".

According to ISPR, the matters related to "geo-strategic environment and regional security including Afghanistan and Kashmir situation were discussed" in the meeting. "I immediately cancelled the meeting and called off peace negotiations", Trump said.

The Taliban reportedly indicated that its leaders would only attend the Camp David meeting if a negotiated settlement with the US had been announced.

So if this particular excess has brought to the point where talks are over, this phase is at an end, we will recommit and relook at ways we might move forward. Taliban leaders said they accepted the idea - as long as the visit came after the deal was announced...

"Afghanistan is now at a critical juncture because of the election and the peace process", he said.

"Negotiating are proceeding well in Afghanistan after 18 years of fighting." the president tweeted.

In that regard, Bret Baier noted Cheney criticized Trump's decision to even consider holding talks with the Taliban at the presidential mountain retreat. "We will soon see if talks will be successful?"
