'More Losses to US', Says Taliban as Trump Cancels Afghan Talks

Afghan group says US President Donald Trump's abrupt cancellation of peace talks will harm the Americans more.

The Taliban has condemned US President Donald Trump's decision to suspend the ongoing talks with the group to end the 18-year war in Afghanistan as an "anti-peace" move.

"Now that US President Trump has announced the suspension of negotiations... this would not harm anyone else but the Americans themselves," the Taliban said in a statement on Sunday.

In a series of tweets on Saturday, Trump said he was calling off a secret meeting scheduled for Sunday with Taliban representatives and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani at Camp David in Maryland, US.

Citing a Taliban attack in Kabul last week in which 12 people, including an American soldier, were killed as the reason, Trump also cancelled the US-Taliban negotiations ongoing in Qatar for nearly a year.

Taliban warns US will ‘suffer more' after Trump cancels talks
The Taliban said the cancellation of talks would "lead to more losses for the US", "harm credibility" and "show their anti-peace stance in more clear way".
