Biden's administration wants to renegotiate Trump's agreements with the Taliban
The administration of US President Joe Biden intends to revise agreements with the Afghan radical Taliban, which were previously signed during the presidency of Donald Trump. Reported by Reuters.
According to the agency, the adviser to the American leader on security, Jake Sullivan, said this during the past telephone conversations with his counterpart in Afghanistan.
The reasons for this decision have not yet been announced. In addition, the material does not specify exactly which points of the agreements are going to be revised in the White House.
In late February 2020, the United States and the radical Afghan Taliban signed a peace agreement for the first time in more than 18 years of war. According to the agreements, American troops are to leave Afghanistan 14 months after the deal is concluded.
In November last year, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held talks with the Afghan authorities and the Taliban, which he said he was pleased with.
