Taliban have agreed to a political plan of action to end the nearly 18-year conflict in Afghanistan. As reported by the Afghan television station “Tolo News” on Tuesday, the Taliban delegates from the capital Kabul approved a similar agreement at a two-day conference in Qatar.

The Taliban pledged to stop killing civilians and assured that Afghan women would continue to enjoy fundamental rights in political, social, economic and cultural life “in harmony with Islamic values”.

The agreement is not legally binding, but it is intended to serve as a framework for further negotiations on political plan between the Taliban and delegates of the Afghan Government.

The government was not officially a participant in the numerous rounds of negotiations in the capital of Doha, Qatar, as the Taliban deny its legitimacy. Government delegates therefore only participated as private individuals in the talks.

The negotiations were organized by the United States under the leadership of Special Envoy Zalmay Khalilzad. At the same time, talks between the Taliban and the United States continue in Doha.

Just a week ago or so, the Taliban in the capital Kabul had launched a serious attack near a Defense Department complex that killed at least a dozen civilians and injured more than 100, many of them children.

The United Nations appealed to insurgents to protect the lives of civilians. In the conflict in Afghanistan last year about 3800 civilians were killed.

Earlier, the US President Donald Trump has designated Afghanistan as a training center for terrorists, thereby defending the delay in the troop withdrawal it was seeking. “I’d like to just go out,”

Trump told Fox News in an interview. “The problem is, it just seems to be a laboratory for terrorists.” With reference to the famous American elite university, the president added, “I call it the Harvard of terrorists.”
