Trump rejects peace talks with Taliban after series of deadly attacks

30 January 2018

US President Donald Trump has rejected the idea of engaging in peace talks with the Taliban in the near future following a series of militant attacks in Afghanistan.

“I don’t think we’re prepared to talk right now,” Trump was quoted by the White House as saying on 29 January during a lunch meeting with members of the United Nations Security Council.

“It’s a whole different fight over there. They [the Taliban] are killing people left and right. Innocent people are being killed left and right…. So we don’t want to talk with the Taliban. There may be a time, but it’s going to be a long time,” said Trump at the White House.
