Foreign troops ‘to quit Afghanistan in 18 months under draft deal,’ Taliban officials say

Taliban officials said U.S. negotiators on Saturday agreed a draft peace deal stipulating the withdrawal of foreign forces from Afghanistan within 18 months of the agreement being signed.

The details were given to Reuters by Taliban sources at the end of six days of talks with U.S. special peace envoy Zalmay Khalilzad in Qatar aimed at ending the United States’ longest war.

While neither side released an official statement, Khalilzad tweeted later that the talks had made “significant progress” and would resume shortly, adding that he planned to travel to Afghanistan to meet government officials.

And what will change when their gone? Nothing beyond an increase in murder for Allah. It is and will remain an Islamist shithole nation likely to spawn terror attacks on the west.
