The U.S. President Donald Trump has said his administration is working on agreement with the Taliban following the release of Western professors, it has been reported.

President Trump made the remarks in Fox News’ “Fox & Friends”, according to CNN television channel.

“We’re working on an agreement now with the Taliban. Let’s see what happens” Trump said.

The Taliban group released the two kidnapped professors of the American University of Afghanistan in a prisoner swap which also resulted in release of three key Haqqani Network leaders.

President Trump had earlier expressed that the release of the two professors would lead to ceasefire in Afghanistan.

The Taliban group had also expressed hopes that the prisoner swap would aid peace process.

This comes as President called off peace talks with Taliban in the month of September following a series of deadly attacks which killed several people in Kabul including an American service member.
