US President Donald Trump’s decision to cancel talks with the Taliban, at least for the time being, has left Afghanistan on the verge of a bloody lead in national elections later this month, the New York Times said on Sunday. Exclude the withdrawal of US troops without a peace agreement.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed the Taliban attack on Thursday for canceling the talks, which were scheduled at Camp David this week, which were expected to lead to the signing of a peace agreement. Pompeo said in televised remarks that the Taliban had tried to gain a negotiating advantage by launching terrorist attacks inside the country, which resulted in the death of a US NATO soldier, adding that they would stay away from the deal if others tried to use violence to achieve better negotiating ends.

But after the abrupt cancellation of a diplomatic process that seemed to yield results, it was not clear where Trump would go. The New York Times says the administration still faces questions about why Trump’s decision and amid doubts whether he wants to sign the deal himself at a dramatic summit at Camp David, and why he chose to announce a decision to withdraw a secret Taliban invitation.

Although Pompeo, the other administration official and also the Taliban have left the door open for the resumption of negotiations, any new talks will not take place for a few months, as each side feels that the seemingly affordable agreement has been sabotaged by others.

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.
