U.S., Afghan Taliban sign peace deal
Topics: U.S. TALIBAN
U.S. President Donald Trump called on the Taliban and the Afghan government to “seize this opportunity for peace,” and said if they live up to the commitments, “we will have a powerful path forward to end the war in Afghanistan and bring our troops home.”
A reduction of violence agreement between the U.S. and Taliban went into effect seven days ago, and its success paved the way for today’s signing.
The talks between the Taliban and Afghan officials are supposed to begin with in 10 days. ■
