(VIDEO) The war in Afghanistan ends after 18 years! The US has made peace with the Taliban! The United States has reached a global peace agreement with the Taliban in Afghanistan after more than 18 years of conflict!
If the Muslims respect the agreement, the United States will withdraw all troops from the Afghan territory, along with all other NATO troops of the allies. Donald Trump said: “(…) we worked hard in order to end America’s longest war and bring our troops back home.”
Moreover, the global peace agreement was signed by US envoy Zalmay Khalilzad and the Taliban’s political representative, Mullah Abdul Ghani Barada, and Mr. Pompeo was present at the signing of the agreement as a witness.
Mullah Abdul Ghani Barada: “I hope that with the withdrawal of all foreign forces from Afghanistan, the Afghan nation, under an Islamic regime, will be able to feel relief and start a prosperous new life.”
US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper is in the capital of Afghanistan, Kabul, along with Muslim country president Ashraf Ghani. Mark Esper said: “This is a moment of hope, but it is only the beginning. The future will not be easy. Achieving lasting peace in Afghanistan will require patience and compromise between all parties. ” He then said that the US would support the Afghan government.
US troops, as well as its NATO allies, have 14 months to leave the Afghan territory, only on condition that the Taliban abide by the treaty. Activist Zahra Husseini conveyed a message from Kabul that this treaty could have dire consequences for the women of the state of Afghanistan. She stated:
“I don’t trust the Taliban and I remember how women were suppressed when they were driving. (…) Today is a dark day. While looking at the signing of the agreement I had a bad feeling that it will result in their return to power, rather than peace.”
