US President Donald Trump wants to conduct peace talks with Afghanistan on condition that the country stops a fire, Presidential palace spokesman Sediq Sediqi wrote on Twitter on Friday.
Trump had a phone conversation with his Afghan counterpart Ashraf Ghani in which he expressed his willingness.
The United States and the Taliban repeatedly discussed to stop an Afghan conflict which has been lasting for 18 years but failed to make an agreement.
The Afghan government seemed to be isolated concerning Taliban denial. The Taliban called the Afghan government a “puppet regime.”
So, following the phone talks, a spokesman for the Taliban, Zabiullah Mujahid said that the Taliban will negotiate with all Afghan sides when the US withdraws from Afghanistan.
Peace there could not be settled soon regardless of the fact that three major Taliban members were released because two Kabul-based American University of Afghanistan professors were set free for them. After the exchange, a US helicopter Chinook was hit near Logar on Wednesday with two American soldiers passing away.
Also, the troops killed about 12 Afghans in Kunduz while assaulting the territory at night.
