Davos … News Time

US President Donald Trump has told Afghan counterpart Ashraf Ghani that he wants to see an “extraordinary” reduction in Taliban attacks before the start of “meaningful” talks. According to a report by the Qatari Broadcasting Agency, Al Jazeera, presidents of both countries discussed the security situation in Afghanistan during the sideline meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos. In a statement issued by the White House, Donald Trump emphasized that the Taliban needed significant and lasting reductions in attacks which will facilitate meaningful dialogue about the future of Afghanistan. Taliban spokesman said this week that US troop’s withdrawal from Afghanistan is expected this month and the Taliban are ready to cut down on military operations before the deal is signed.

Remember that on September 8 this year, President Donald Trump surprised everyone by announcing that he had invited senior Taliban leadership and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to meet at Camp David, but at the last minute, they canceled talks on the death of an American soldier in a Taliban attack. Reacting to this, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said Donald Trump suspended the series of talks. Now, however, the United States will suffer more extraordinary losses than ever before, but the door will still be open for future talks. The Taliban delegation also went to Russia September 14 after talks with the US were canceled, the Taliban leader, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the visit was not an attempt to resume talks with the United States. Rather, it has to assess regional support to force the US to withdraw from Afghanistan. Later on September 29, the Taliban delegation visited Beijing and met with Chinese Special Envoy Deng Xijun.

The talks were suspended by US and Taliban representatives regarding the ongoing negotiations in Doha’s capital Doha. That they agreed on a procedure that would be finalized soon. So if this agreement was reached, the United States would likely plan to gradually withdraw its troops from Afghanistan. Whereas, the Taliban would have guaranteed that Afghanistan would not be a safe haven for any other militant group in the future.

Last November, US President Donald Trump arrived in Afghanistan on the eve of the Thanksgiving Western Thanksgiving. Where he hoped the Taliban would agree to a ceasefire to end America’s long war. Donald Trump said that we say there should be ceasefire but he did not want a ceasefire but now he too wants a ceasefire and I think that will work now. In this regard, Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on January 16 said that the Taliban had expressed “willingness” to reduce violent attacks in Afghanistan. Following Shah Mehmood Qureshi’s statement, speculation was circulating that the results of a new dialogue between the United States and the Taliban were imminent.
