U.S President calls off peace negotiations with the Taliban

US President, Donald Trump said he called off peace negotiations with the Taliban that sought to end America’s 18-year war in Afghanistan.

Trump tweeted he had been set to meet Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and senior Taliban leaders on Sunday.


But he cancelled the secret meeting at his Camp David retreat after the militants admitted they were behind a recent attack that killed a US soldier.


The Taliban said Americans will “lose the most” for cancelling.

The talks were due to take place a few days before the anniversary of 9/11.
