However then on Saturday, Trump revealed that he had cancelled an unprecedented assembly between the Taliban and himself at storied Camp David.

Trump has cited the death of a US service member in one of those blasts as the reason why he now calls the US-Taleban talks "dead". Perhaps it was because the US President baulked at the optics of having the Taliban over on the 9/11 anniversary, or had second thoughts about giving the go-ahead to an agreement which his Secretary of State had reportedly refused to put his signature on.

The peace negotiations - which were in their final stages, only requiring a final sign-off from both parties - were meant to smooth the United States withdrawal from Afghanistan and ensure the Taliban did not use the country as a terrorist "safe haven". Perhaps the break that Trump has caused will give all sides an opportunity to see what was wrong, reconsider their positions and begin a more inclusive "peace process", rather than a deal that was windowdressing an U.S. surrender to the Taliban.

But as he canceled the meeting, Trump also declared the peace negotiations "dead".

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani reiterated, however, his commitment to the people-owned peace process amid the breakup of the US-Taliban peace talks.

As a result, "as far as I'm concerned, they're dead", Trump said of the discussions with the militants in Afghanistan. An alleged member of the Taliban is pictured on the suitable.

"We've been a peacekeeper there, in a way, for 19 years", the president told reporters last month.

Before he was ordered to return home from the region, USA chief negotiator Zalmay Khalilzad said his team of negotiators had drawn up a draft framework agreement that, if approved by Trump, would allow 5,000 American troops to leave five military bases in the country within 135 days.

A giant a part of Trump's 2016 election victory and subsequent first time period in workplace has been his willpower to maintain the USA out of what he sees as pointless wars in Syria and different principally Muslim worldwide locations. "But at the end of the day, President Trump wants out of Afghanistan".
