The peace agreement between U.S. and Taliban
On February 29 2020 the United States and the Taliban signed a peace agreement in Doha, which provides for the withdrawal of US troops and coalitions from Afghanistan in 14 months in exchange for the Taliban’s refusal to use the country’s territory to attack the United States and its allies.
The U.S. and the Taliban have been negotiating for several months in 2019.
However, in September, after a series of terrorist acts committed by the Taliban in Kabul and a number of other cities, which also killed the US soldiers, President Donald Trump ordered that negotiations with the Taliban be stopped and the agreement be canceled.
In mid-January, the Taliban sent to Khalilzad a document proposing a temporary ceasefire in Afghanistan for seven to ten days. Then the representative of the Taliban political office in Qatar confirmed the resumption of negotiations between the Afghan radical movement and the American delegation.
