In response to the latest Taliban attack in Kabul, US President Donald Trump has declared that negotiations with the Islamist group over a peace agreement have ended. He also has a secret meeting scheduled for Sunday with the leaders of the Taliban canceled at Camp David, Trump wrote on Saturday night (local time) in the online service Twitter. The suicide attack in Kabul on Thursday also killed a United States soldier.

The United States, which invaded Afghanistan almost 18 years ago, has been negotiating with the radical Islamic Taliban for a year and has already reached a basic settlement. Washington wanted to pull around 5,000 out of a total of 13,000 troops from five bases in Afghanistan if the Taliban were to honor their commitments to the country’s security.

According to Trump, he wanted to hold talks with the Taliban leaders at his estate in Camp David near Washington on Sunday and receive the Afghan leader Ashraf Ghani. But he canceled the meeting, tweeted United States president.

Donald Trump referred to the attack on Thursday, in which “one of our great soldiers and eleven other people were killed”. He accused the Taliban of trying to “strengthen their bargaining position”, with the attack.
