US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called Afghanistan’s President Ashraf Ghani at the weekend to express his frustration with Washington’s unrestricted delay in negotiations with the Taliban and the disappointment of the latest y spring attack “of the rebels.
The meeting was to celebrate the days when the Taliban and Kabul government officials came together for the first time. The war in Afghanistan, America’s longest controversy, was considered an important end to a negotiated end and ultimately to the withdrawal of US troops from the country.
The Department of Foreign Affairs said that Pompeo called Ghani on Saturday because of the postponement and announced that the Taliban had begun a new attack this spring.
The Taliban, even in the harsh winter months, kept up with the daily attacks and gave surprising damage to the fighting Afghan army and security forces. Many civilians lost their lives in the crossfire.
In a phone conversation with Ghani, he urged participants to agree that the talks were the best chance for peace in Afghanistan.
