United States to resume the peace talk with Afghan Taliban.

According to the details, U.S. President Donald Trump made an unannounced Thanksgiving visit to American troops in Afghanistan.

Trump informed there that the peace talks has been resumed.

The news comes less than three months after Trump abruptly halted the yearlong U.S.-Taliban dialogue just as the two adversaries had come close to signing an agreement to end the 18-year-old Afghan war, America’s longest overseas military engagement.

“The Taliban wants to make a deal and we’re meeting with them and we’re saying it has to be a cease-fire and they didn’t want to do a cease-fire and now they do want to do a cease-fire,” Trump said during a meeting with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani at Bagram Air Field.

“I believe it probably will work out that way, and we’ll see what happens,” Trump added.

There was no immediate reaction from the Taliban who have rejected repeated calls for a cease-fire until a foreign troop withdrawal deal is concluded with the U.S.

It is unfair to blame Pakistan for US setback in Afghanistan: PM

Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that accusing Pakistan for the setbacks suffered by America in Afghanistan is unfair.

Prime Minister Imran Khan said that Pakistan lost 70,000 lives and the economy suffered a loss of $ 100 billion, Pakistan should have been neutral in this war of America.

He added that the same groups were trained in the war against the Soviet Union, which was funded by the America’s Central Investigation Agency (CIA).
