The U.S. President Donald Trump exuded optimism about the signing of peace deal with Taliban, confirming that he would sign the agreement if negotiators could work the final details.

Trump made the remarks before leaving for an official trip to India on Sunday, according to USA Today.

He said “I think it’s going to work out” with the Taliban, emphasizing that “They’re tired of fighting.”

“We’ve been over there 19 years. We think they want to make a deal. We want to make a deal,” President added.

This comes as the U.S. and Taliban representatives reached to an initial agreement during the final phases of the talks in Qatar earlier this month.

The two sides also agreed on a seven-day reduction in violence which would pave the way for the signing of the deal later this month.
