The U.S. President Donald Trump has said Washington will announce somethings about Afghanistan in coming weeks.
Without disclosing further information, Trump told reporters in New Jersey on Sunday that the United States does not want Afghanistan to become a laboratory for the terrorists.
In his interaction with the reporters, Trump further added “A lot of bad things are happening in Afghanistan, and some very positive things.”
President Trump also added “But we would — look, we’re there for one reason: We don’t want that to be a laboratory. Okay? It can’t be a laboratory for terror. And we’ve stopped that, and we have a very, very good view. I mean, some things are going to be announced over the next couple of weeks as to what happened, who’s been taken out.”
He also added that “A lot of people have been taken out that were very bad — both ISIS and al Qaeda.”
This comes as the U.S. and Taliban representatives have participated in 8 rounds of peace talks in the Qatari capital of Doha to find a political solution to end the conflict.
Counter-terrorism assurances, ceasefire, troops withdrawal and intra-Afghan dialogue are among the key topics on which the U.S. and Taliban representatives have held extensive rounds of talks.
