In September, the United States and the Taliban seemed to be about to sign an agreement. The United States agreed to withdraw thousands of U.S. troops from Afghanistan in exchange for the Talibans assurance that extremist organizations would not use Afghanistan as a base to attack the United States and its allies.
At that time, it was expected that the signing of the agreement would open a dialogue window for the Taliban and the Afghan government. However, trump announced that a year long negotiation was broken after the death of a US military, and cancelled the secret talks that the two sides had planned to hold at Camp David, Maryland.
However, three months later, the two sides returned to the negotiating table. On November 28, trump paid a surprise visit to Afghanistan, expressed sympathy to the US military in Afghanistan and held a meeting with Afghan President Ghani. Trump said after the meeting that the U.S. side has resumed dialogue with the Taliban, but whether the two sides can reach an agreement still needs to wait and see..
On December 7, a US source said, the US resumed negotiations in Doha today, focusing on the issue of reducing violence, which could lead to internal negotiations and a ceasefire in Afghanistan.
Later, the Talibans spokesman in Qatar, Suhail Shaheen, confirmed on social media websites that the two sides had resumed peace talks, claiming that the two sides had resumed the dialogue from the breach.
Negotiations revolve around signing agreements and related issues, Shaheen wrote. Negotiations will continue on the 8th.
