Taliban vows to fight US in Afghanistan after Trump ends talks

Blast heard near U.S. Embassy in Kabul on 9/11 anniversary

Blast heard near U.S. Embassy in Kabul on 9/11 anniversary

Two Taliban auto bombs shook Kabul last week, killing several civilians and two members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation mission.

The anniversary ceremonies remember the almost 3,000 people who were killed when hijacked planes struck the trade center in NY, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania.

Following a string of bombings in Kabul and elsewhere in Afghanistan over the last week, US President Donald Trump called off negotiations with the Taliban that had been ongoing for over a year, insisting the talks were "dead".

Rosaleen Tallon was angry - though not at the U.S. -Taliban negotiations.

"Afghanistan wants to move forward, not backward", she said.

The renewed war of words between the two sides raised the specter of violence in Afghanistan as Trump and the Taliban pledged to take the fight to each other following the precipitous collapse in talks.

Word of the planned Camp David meeting was a surprise to Ellen Judd, who chairs the Afghanistan committee of the September Eleventh Families for Peaceful Tomorrows, which involves over 200 relatives.

'If Trump desires to cease talks, we are going to take the primary manner and they'll quickly remorse it'.

Peace talks had been meant to debate the withdrawal of United States troops from Afghanistan, a prerequisite for peace within the nation.

A large explosion went off in the vicinity of the US Embassy in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, moments after midnight on the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, footage from the scene shows.

The Taliban, which controls more territory than at any time since 2001 when it governed the country, said on Sunday that more American lives here would be lost.

The Taliban "are the people who are partially responsible for our loved ones dying and other Americans dying", Riches said, but "I'd like to see it end".

Afghanistan's President Ashraf Ghani, right, and USA special envoy for peace in Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, left, meet in Kabul, Nov. 10, 2018. Still, Ielpi sees the president as a get-things-done leader and hopes he can eventually work out a deal - if it's a stringent one.

While the Afghan government's technical and operational preparations for the elections are on track, he said, "we still hear much anxiety expressed by Afghan citizens particularly in view of the Taliban's stated threat to disrupt the electoral process, especially by targeting civilians participating in the elections".

Many young people, especially young women, are anxious about future restrictions to their participation in the socio-economic and political life of their country, he added.
