Al Jazeera – Inside Story: Has the peace process in Afghanistan collapsed?

01/10/2019

 

Talks to end the war in Afghanistan appeared to be making progress, but the negotiations are now at risk.
The Taliban and the U.S. came up with a draft deal after nearly a year of discussions in Qatar, and America’s chief negotiator sounded optimistic when he revealed the details to the Afghan president last week.
However on Sunday, U.S. president Donald Trump tweeted that he cancelled a secret meeting with Taliban leaders and the Afghan president at Camp David.
He doubted the armed group wanted an agreement after a Taliban car bombing killed an American soldier and 11 other people in Kabul on Thursday.
Is peace in Afghanistan in danger of slipping away?
