The U.S. President Donald Trump called the Taliban militants ‘warriors’ in his latest remarks amid ongoing efforts to end the violence in Afghanistan through a negotiated political settlement.

He made the remarks during a question-and-answer session televised by Fox News.

Trump further added that the leader of Taliban will have a difficult task ahead to persuade the group’s fighters to end violent attacks in the country.

“It’s not the easiest leadership position,” Trump said in an apparent reference to Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, the deputy political chief of the group with whom he spoke for 35 minutes after the signing of peace deal.

This comes as the U.S. and Taliban group recently signed a peace deal after observing a 7-day reduction in violence.

The two sides signed the agreement after almost 18 months of negotiations in Qatari capital of Doha.

However, the recent wave of attacks and clashes in some parts of Afghanistan has sparked concerns that an increase in violence may adversely affect the peace process and subsequent launch of intra-Afghan talks.
