President Donald Trump will meet with his top advisers on Friday to discuss negotiations with the Taliban over the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan and the prospects for a political settlement between the warring parties there, a senior administration official said.

Trump is due to receive a briefing today from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and other top advisers on the talks, led by special envoy Zalmay Khalilzad. Trump is currently on holiday at his New Jersey Bedminster Golf Club, and an official said the briefing was expected to be attended by Vice President Mike Pence and National Security Adviser John Bolton.

A senior Pentagon official, who asked not to be named, said key differences remained between the United States and the Taliban after an eighth round of talks ended in Qatar on Monday.

A senior administration official said it was not necessary for the Bedminster meeting to end with resolutions, but Trump was “very clear about his desire to bring the troops home”.
