Taliban Agrees to Temporary Ceasefire in Afghanistan

HeadlineDec 30, 2019

The Taliban’s ruling council has agreed to a temporary ceasefire in Afghanistan, opening a window for the signing of a potential peace deal with the United States. The Trump administration has demanded a ceasefire as a precondition of signing the peace agreement, which comes amid start-and-stop negotiations between U.S. and Taliban officials in Qatar. A peace deal could lead to the end of the U.S. War in Afghanistan, the longest war in U.S. history.
