Killing of leader's brother will not derail U.S. talks: Taliban

The war has taken more than 2,400 American lives.

In a tweet following the briefing, Trump wrote: "Just completed a very good meeting on Afghanistan".

Trump and Pompeo were joined for the talks by Vice President Mike Pence, national security adviser John Bolton, Defense Secretary Mike Esper, Joint Chiefs chairman General Joseph Dunford and CIA Director Gina Haspel.

The meeting brought together Trump's Afghan peace envoy, Zalmay Khalilzad, secretary of state Mike Pompeo, vice-president Mike Pence, national security adviser John Bolton and the heads of the military and Central Intelligence Agency.

"The meeting went very well, and negotiations are proceeding", the White House said in a statement. Khalilzad, who arrived in Washington late Monday, expects to return to Doha, where his Taliban counterparts will report on their own leadership consultations.

Team Trump is considering a phased withdrawal of about 5,000 of the 14,000 U.S. troops in the war-torn country - a move opponents say could lead to the Taliban regaining control.

United States officials are hoping that the Afghan parties, once they have agreed to meet, will jointly call for a delay in Afghanistan's presidential election, scheduled for September 28. That description irks Republican Sen. "Instead, it is paving the way for another attack on the American homeland and attacks against American interests around the world".

Pompeo released a statement after the meeting that touched on Graham's concern.

Both U.S. negotiators and the Taliban have reported progress after eight rounds of talks since late a year ago.

"To trust the Taliban to control Al Qaeda" and other militant groups in Afghanistan "as a replacement for a United States counterterrorism force would be a bigger mistake than Obama's Iranian nuclear deal, " he said.

The U.S. has about 14,000 troops in Afghanistan.

"Any peace agreement which denies the USA a robust counter-terrorism capability in Afghanistan is not a peace deal", he said in a statement.

It is anticipated that the Afghan talks would develop a road map for Taliban inclusion in government and would address matters including the role of women in Afghanistan and other social issues.

"The main goal of the [joint] statement [between the U.S. and the Afghan government] is that the United States and the western countries reaffirm their commitments to the people of Afghanistan against the rumors which say the agreement or any agreement which the USA signs with the Taliban will result in departure from Afghanistan", Mr. Sediqqi said.

The Taliban have kept up a near-daily rate of deadly attacks, despite holding several rounds of talks with Khalilzad since his appointment nearly a year ago.

A pullout has raised fears within the USA military and among some lawmakers that Afghanistan could plunge into a new civil war that could see a return of Taliban rule and give al Qaeda and other militants a sanctuary in which to expand and plot new attacks on US and allied targets. The 10th Mountain Division Combat Aviation Brigade from Fort Drum, New York, will deploy to Afghanistan later this year, and the 3rd Security Forces Assistance Brigade from Fort Hood, Texas, will go in to replace the 2nd SFAB, which does much of the training and advising of Afghan security forces around the country.
