U.S. and Taliban delegates in Qatar are working out the terms for a reduction in violence as part of ongoing peace talks, and sources familiar with the talks say the United States has recently made several new demands with the reduction in violence plan. "We got close once before to having an agreement: a piece of paper that we mutually executed, and the Taliban were unable to demonstrate either their will or capacity or both to deliver on a reduction in violence". "We're hopeful we can achieve that but we're not there yet, and work certainly remains".

President Donald Trump on Tuesday night told Americans that his administration was working to end the Afghan war - the longest conflict in the country' history - and bring United States troops back home, but he did not provide a timeline for the withdrawal.

The controversy over the question of ceasefire is delaying signing of the peace agreement that both sides had finalized in August and was scheduled to be signed in mid-September previous year.

But past year he abruptly said he had cancelled a previously unannounced summit at the Camp David presidential retreat with the Taliban because of an attack that killed an American soldier.

He included "It is also not our function to serve other nations as a law enforcement agency". He further said he "loudly pledged a new approach" and adds that "great nations do not fight endless wars".

Taliban attacks on US military personnel in September and December 2019 have interrupted the peace talks that began the same year between the United States and the Taliban.

The nationally broadcast address was marked by visible tensions between the Republican President and House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Peolosi, a Democrat, with the Trump ignoring a handshake with Ms Pelosi at the start of his address and Pelosi tearing up Trump's address at the end.

"We are working to finally end the longest war in the United States and bring our troops back home", Trump said. on Tuesday During his speech on the state of the Union before the United States Congress he referred to some foreign policy points. "In Afghanistan, the determination and valor of our warfighters has allowed us to make tremendous progress, and peace talks are underway".

"I do not seek to kill hundreds of thousands of people in Afghanistan, many of them totally innocent", Trump said in the joint session of Congress.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid quickly responded to Trump's remarks and said actions are more important than words. "We will closely watch Trump's actions and not his speeches. This is not an optimistic issue, but it is a matter of peace and security for our Afghan brothers and sisters who have actually endured a lot of suffering and this war must end", said Khan.

He later allowed veteran U.S. negotiator Zalmay Khalilzad to resume talks, which had taken place for months in Qatar.

The rustic's post-war long run and the position of the Taliban stays unclear. But the Taliban official says Taliban will declare a complete ceasefire as both sides ink the deal.
