US and Taliban reach truce deal, US official says, paving way for peace talks
After nearly two decades of War, a potential breakthrough in talks between the United States and the Taliban, the two sides have agreed to a partial 7-Day ceasefire in Afghanistan, which many hold could eventually lead to an end to the 18 years conflict. Us officials, however, say the start of formal negotiations is conditional upon the Taliban, reducing its violent to text 4 terrorist attacks against our homelands and that we are committed to to. I maintain that mission at whatever resource level we need under the agreement.

The US would continue to scale back its nearly 13,000 truth and 1/2 stand. The Taliban in exchange has reportedly agreed to end roadside and suicide bombings as well as Rocket attacks throughout the entire country. Should the deal be upheld, the militant group would enter peace talks with Afghan officials before which some 5 thousand Taliban prisoners would be released. Nato has also said it would reduce its 16,000 forces in Afghanistan if the Taliban shows quote real will to reduce violence.

First is to continue to support the Afghan Army and security forces, so Taliban understands that they will never win on the battlefield, have to sit down and negotiate the temporary agreement.
A senior U.S. official said Friday the United States and the Taliban have reached a truce agreement that will take effect “very soon” and could lead to withdrawals of American troops from Afghanistan.
