President Trump Calls Off Peace Talks with Taliban

This weekend, President Trump publicly called off a secret meeting at Camp David with the Taliban and the president of Afghanistan that aimed to end the 18-year war, the longest in U.S. history.

The United States and Taliban had appeared close to signing an agreement after holding nine rounds of talks in Doha.

The negotiations took a surprise turn when President Trump suggested a Camp David meeting that included Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, who had not been involved in the previous talks.
