Mr. Trump, on Sunday, announced that he canceled his meeting with the group of Taliban which would held at David camp. Mr. Trump did a series of tweets and declared that Taliban’s activity halted the peace process.

While summarizing the Trumps tweet we can say Mr. Trump said that the attack which was held on last week, that attack killed our great soldier and 11 other people. I called off the meeting and canceled the peace process. They are doing so in order to strengthen their bargaining grounds. They are spoiling the process. There are not fulfilling their commitments they don’t have the ethical ground to do the negotiations. For how long they remain committed to bloodshed. Mr. Trump called of the meeting when the militant’s leaders were on their way to Camp David. He also canceled the meeting with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani

Mr. Trump tweeted: “An attack in an attack in Kabul that killed one of our great soldiers and 11 other people. I (Mr. Trump) immediately canceled the meeting and called off peace negotiations. What kind of people would kill so many in order to seemingly strengthen their bargaining position? They didn’t, they only made it worse! If they cannot agree to a ceasefire during these very important peace talks, and would even kill 12 innocent people, then they probably don’t have the power to negotiate a meaningful agreement anyway. How many more decades are they willing to fight?” He said that militant leaders were on their way to the US by this time when I called the meeting. Moreover. He had also canceled the separate meeting with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.

What does Trump Want?

Mr. Trump wants to see a change in their behavior. As according to Mr. Pompeo many times Taliban had violated their commitments  because of this Mr. Trump said that he would not accept this deal as there are not fulfilling their commitments as deals are just a piece of paper which have no worth until both of parties are willing to their undertakings

The response of the Taliban

On the suspension of the meeting Taliban representative that it is not harmful to us it will be harmful to the American’s only. It clearly shows that American credibility and their stance for the peace process is vague.

That meeting may have fruitful result it would end the 18-year war that starts after the 9/11. Mr. Trump just 3 days before the anniversary of 9/11 canceled the meeting process which halted the peace process. It was a secret meeting which was a great move by U.S administration to make peace process successful. However, nothing works now as Mr. Trump called of the meeting

Why did Trump want to be a part of a deal?

Mr. Trump decided to host the meeting after his session with national security advisers. Mr. Trump has issues with some points of deals so he wants to be a part of deal. Mr. Trump viewed himself as a wonderful negotiator so he wants to be a part of it.

Mr. Trump wants to make this peace process as an election campaign card. As presidential elections are coming closer Mr. Trump is doing focus on his promise.

As Mr. Trump took U-turn on many events so it is vague wither this decision is final or not. The meeting was scheduled on the 28th of September. Hope so things will resolve soon and meeting will be held as per schedule.

The response of the State Department of Security Council

There seems to be no response from the state department of the Security Council on Mr. Trump recent statement.

Why did the Taliban violate their commitment?

According to Mr. Mike Pompeo, secretary of the state, that both sides violated their commitments as in the last 10 days U.S forces have killed more than 1000 Taliban’s. So, in response to their companion deaths, the Taliban group had done a terrorist attack during last which took the life of 12 people including U.S Armed Force member.

What is the need of the hour?

There is some group in Afghanistan who don’t want to see this peace process successful. So they are doing propagandas and using false tricks to create misunderstanding between the Taliban and American. So in order to make this negation more fruitful both of the sides have to understand the facts and should identify the enemies of this process. We finally reached a point where we were close, we made real progress, and it is time to finalize the process with greater care.
