In an attempt to stop the war from completely tearing down Afghanistan, the US, and the Taliban have promulgated to finally establish peace talks. The development between the two sides will be in the form of separate statements, to the media.
“After decades of conflict, we have come to an understanding with the Taliban on a significant reduction in violence across Afghanistan. This is an important step on a long road to peace. Moreover, I call on all Afghans to seize this opportunity,” tweeted US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Consequently, our people can live a peaceful and prosperous life under the shade of an Islamic system, Allah willing.”
