Trump to be briefed on Afghan peace talks amid fears of hasty pullout
By Lauren Meier - The Washington Times
17-08-2019 - President Trump and administration security officials were briefed by special Afghan envoy Zalmay Khalilzad on the state of peace talks with the Taliban on Friday, as lawmakers unveiled legislation setting conditions of Mr. Trump’s hoped-for U.S. troop withdrawal.
Mr. Khalilzad has said he is nearing the end of talks with the Taliban and the U.S.-backed Afghan government in Kabul that call for a cease-fire and preparations to bring home the bulk of U.S. forces engaged in the longest war in American history.
The White House Friday evening confirmed the meeting that centered on “ongoing negotiations around eventual peace and reconciliation agreement with the Taliban and the government of Afghanistan.”
Vice President Mike Pence, Defense Secretary Mark Esper, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford, National Security Adviser John R. Bolton, and CIA Director Gina Haspel were in attendance.
The meeting took place at the president’s golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, where Mr. Trump is spending a working vacation.
