Pakistan, China and Afghanistan has called for a withdrawal of foreign troops on September 7. The US and Afghanistan are attempting to move towards a peace negotiation. Henceforth, a withdrawal of foreign troops is to be conducted in an orderly manner. However, this was followed by insurgent attacks that killed an American soldier along with 11 other people. President Trump responded immediately, stating that all peace deals are off the table.
Unbeknownst to almost everyone, the major Taliban leaders and, separately, the President of Afghanistan, were going to secretly meet with me at Camp David on Sunday. They were coming to the United States tonight. Unfortunately, in order to build false leverage, they admitted to..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 7, 2019
....an attack in Kabul that killed one of our great great soldiers, and 11 other people. I immediately cancelled the meeting and called off peace negotiations. What kind of people would kill so many in order to seemingly strengthen their bargaining position? They didn’t, they....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 7, 2019
....only made it worse! If they cannot agree to a ceasefire during these very important peace talks, and would even kill 12 innocent people, then they probably don’t have the power to negotiate a meaningful agreement anyway. How many more decades are they willing to fight?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 7, 2019
The Taliban so far has refused to communicate with the Afghan administration. The administration is led by President Ashraf Ghani. The Taliban views Ashraf Ghani as a US stooge and have not conducted any peace talks with him. The US deal to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan however, will not be achieved unless there are an 'intra-Afghan' talks happening with the insurgents and Kabul.
China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi talking about the recent developments stated that China and Pakistan are looking forward to peaceful negotiations between the Taliban and the US. Yi encouraged both the parties to have intra-Afghan talks to attain their goals. He further persisted to 'continue negotiations and to reach an agreement'. Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Pakistan's Foreign Minister made a statement asserting that Pakistan 'will take measures to further manage our borders so nobody uses our soil against Afghanistan or other countries'.
