US Resumes Talks With Taliban In Doha

  • US envoy Zalmay Khalilzad has in recent weeks made a whistle-stop tour of countries with a stake in Afghan peace including Pakistan

United States representatives resumed negotiations with the Taliban* movement in Doha, Qatar on 7 December after a three-month halt, AFP reported, citing an anonymous source.

In this regard, the members of the Taliban's political office in Doha expect the Peace Talks to resume within the next few days, he added.

While Khalilzad is talking to the Taliban about reducing violence, the U.S. military in its daily report said overnight on Saturday U.S. airstrikes killed 37 Taliban and operations by the Afghan National Security Forces killed another 22 of the militants.

The Afghan Taliban spokesman, Zabiullah Mujahid tweeted that the peace talks will continue for a second day, tomorrow (Sunday).

It was also expected a possible peace agreement could be done after more than 18 years of war.

Trump has expressed frustration with America's longest war repeatedly saying he wants to bring the estimated 12,000 US soldiers home and calling on Afghanistan's own police and military to step up.

Perhaps, during a surprise visit to a U.S. military base in Afghanistan last week, Trump said that the Taliban wants to make a deal.

The insurgents have continued to carry put near daily strikes against military outposts throughout the country.

Trump Calls Trudeau ‘Two-Faced’ as Palace Gossip Goes Viral
This time around, Trump started the week by hammering the same theme, saying Tuesday that Canada was behind monetarily. Trump, though, said Trudeau was upset because he had called him out for not meeting his two per cent target.

He recently organized a captive exchange in which the Taliban released an American and Australian academic who had been held hostage for three years.

The halt to the talks in September came at a crucial stage when it was thought both sides had nearly concluded an agreement.

The Taliban claim they would have agreed to a ceasefire with foreign troops in areas of foreign troop withdrawal.

On December 6 General John Nicholson, a former commander of USA and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces in Afghanistan, cautioned against entering into a deal with the Taliban that does not bind the insurgents to cease nationwide hostilities or reduce the level of violence. The insurgents are reluctant to observe a nationwide cease-fire, fearing it would undermine their military leverage.

In a nod to concerns raised by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, the State Department voiced support for a ceasefire - a key priority for Kabul before it enters negotiations with the insurgents.

Maidan Shahr: At least six Taliban militants were killed after the Afghan armed forces' fighter planes targeted the terror group's hideouts in Sayedabad district of Afghanistan's eastern Wardak province, the Asian nation's army said on Friday.

But the respective sides hadn't confirmed official talks until the December 7 announcements.

Nicholson added the presence of a United States counterterrorism mission in post-withdrawal Afghanistan must also be part of the negotiations with the Taliban to deter future terrorist attacks on America.
