After the cancellation of planned meeting with high-ranking Taliban representatives, the US President Donald Trump declared, negotiations with the insurgents as failed. Looking at the months-long talks with the Taliban, “They’re dead” Trump told reporters in the White House Monday.

The President made it clear that almost 18 years after the beginning of the mission, he is still aiming for a withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, but he does not want to make that premature. “We would like to go, but we will go at the right time”.

Trump had announced on Saturday night on Twitter that he had canceled secret meeting scheduled on Sunday at Camp David with Taliban representatives and separately with the Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, after a Thursday blast in Afghan capital that took 12 lives, including an American soldier.

“We would like to go, but we will go at the right time” US President

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had not ruled out a possible resumption of peace negotiations with the Taliban on Sunday. The Taliban had stated that they were still prepared to hold talks. The United States has been negotiating with the radical Islamic insurgents for months on an agreement designed to pave the way for the withdrawal of American troops and for peace.

Trump defended his plan to receive high-level Taliban representatives at Camp David, the country seat of the American president, on the anniversary of the September 11 attacks. In Camp David, there had been numerous meetings with “bad people” in the past, which were not considered politically correct. Wars would be ended by negotiations.

President Trump said ” It was my idea to set a meeting, and it was my decision to cancel it”. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence denied the media reports that Trump and Pence wanted to enforce the proposed meeting against the resistance. The President emphasized that the only reason for the cancellation was the death of the American soldier. The Taliban are aware that “they made a big mistake”.
