WASHINGTON: President of United States Donald Trump tweets that he called peace talks with Taliban after they admitted Kabul bombing.
Trump said ” Unbeknownst to almost everyone, the major Taliban leaders and, separately, the President of Afghanistan, were going to secretly meet with me at Camp David on Sunday. They were coming to the United States tonight. Unfortunately, in order to build false leverage, they admitted to an attack in Kabul that killed one of our great great soldiers, and 11 other people. I immediately cancelled the meeting and called off peace negotiations. What kind of people would kill so many in order to seemingly strengthen their bargaining position? They didn’t, they. only made it worse! If they cannot agree to a ceasefire during these very important peace talks, and would even kill 12 innocent people, then they probably don’t have the power to negotiate a meaningful agreement anyway. How many more decades are they willing to fight?”.
President Trump said he called off a secret Sunday meeting with the Taliban at Camp David after the Afghanistan bombing.
Trump said if Taliban “cannot agree to a ceasefire during peace talks, they probably don’t have power to negotiate a meaningful agreement.”
