Afghanistan’s Taliban sends warning to Trump in bitter exchange

Kabul blast

President Donald Trump used 9/11 remembrance commemorations Wednesday to announce an unprecedented escalation of the U.S. military assault on Afghanistan's Taliban - just days after he wanted to hold peace talks with the insurgents.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for the bombing in an email statement. "Hosting them at Camp David grants them undeserved legitimacy". He concluded the op-ed by calling the invitation "an insult to all those who died on 9/11 and the American troops who gave their lives fighting them in Afghanistan". The last four days, we have hit our enemy harder than they have ever been hit before, and that will continue, ' Trump vowed.

"We are reasonably confident that any decision on the peace process taken by the U.S. and the worldwide community will take into account all these concerns", Mr Kumar said.

If the Americans want to not attack us, and they want to withdraw, and they sign the agreement, yes we will not attack them.

Over the weekend, the president canceled the secret meeting, which was set to host Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and Taliban leaders.

Using the metaphor of Afghanistan's dramatic Test cricket victory this week over Bangladesh, Akbaruddin said that the social and political progress made by that country over the last 18 years must be "be nurtured, not nullified".

He confirmed that President Trump had extended invitation to the Taliban negotiators and that Khalilzad had conveyed the invitation in August-end. "There was a final agreement, which was the result of almost one year of negotiations". The staunch opposition from the Afghan government and differences in the Trump administration on a possible deal between the U.S. and the Taliban are the other possible reasons for the decision.

He said any process should have full consent of the Afghan government and its people.

About 14,000 United States troops serve in Afghanistan. Some 14,000 United States troops remain in the country, a fraction of the peak of about 100,000 in 2010. "Afghanistan is poised to renew its commitment to an order which ensures a democratically elected government is at the heart of any process to determine a peaceful settlement of its issues", he said. The government has been fighting the Taliban, which has been waging a war against Kabul for nearly two decades.

The U.S. -led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation combat mission ended in 2014, but the allied forces continue to train, advise and assist the Afghan security forces and conduct counterterrorism attacks against al-Qaida and Islamic State militants.
