Trump cancels peace deal with Taliban

Reading Time: < 1 minute

US President Donald Trump says he has cancelled a peace deal with the Taliban.

Trump tweeted he had been set to meet Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and senior Taliban leaders on Sunday.

But he cancelled the meeting at his Camp David retreat after the Taliban admitted it carried out a recent attack in Kabul that killed a US soldier.

US negotiator Zalmay Khalilzad had announced a peace deal “in principle” with the Taliban on Monday.

This comes after nine rounds of talks between the US and Taliban representatives, held in Doha, the capital of the Gulf state of Qatar.
