Blast heard near US Embassy in Kabul on 9-11 anniversary

Column As we remember September 11 let’s not forget the mistakes made in its name

He said Russian Federation considers the U.S. -Taliban deal as an "important step" that would pave the way to the national reconciliation and further comprehensive settlement of the Afghan crisis, and expects it will finally happen.

'We had two methods to finish occupation in Afghanistan, one was jihad and combating, the opposite was talks and negotiations, ' Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid stated.

'If Trump desires to cease talks, we are going to take the primary manner and they'll quickly remorse it'.

Yamamoto spoke three days after President Donald Trump abruptly halted U.S. -Taliban talks, citing an upsurge in attacks by the Islamic insurgent group.

But then on Saturday, Trump revealed that he had cancelled an unprecedented meeting between the Taliban and himself at storied Camp David.

Days earlier he cancelled secret talks with Afghan and Taliban officials in the United States in the wake of a vehicle bombing carried out by the militant group in Kabul that killed 12 people, including a USA soldier.

The U.N. envoy said opportunities for peace over the past year "created hope, but also fear for many", and made clear that the conflict can only be resolved by direct talks involving "the whole spectrum of Afghan society".

Two provincial council members confirmed to German news agency DPA that the insurgency prevailed over Afghan forces in the Yangi Qala and Daraq districts, after days of fighting.

The cancellation - announced on Twitter - was the first time most Americans learned that such a dramatic meeting was even planned.

There was additionally widespread consternation on the characteristically unpredictable method of Trump's negotiating model.

Trump added that he had no second thoughts about his actions.

'By way of advisers, I took my very own recommendation, ' he later instructed reporters.

It is widely thought that Trump has been pushing for a withdrawal of U.S. troops in time for his 2020 reelection bid.

Trump repeated on Monday that he wanted "to get out by the earliest possible time".

However, whether because of last week's killing of a United States soldier, as he says, or due to wider misgivings, that goal now appears in tatters.

Many Afghans had expressed deep unease over the USA talks, seeing them as America selling out in a bid to end 18 years of gruelling war.

"I don't want to see other families suffer the way I did".

'However proper now they're murdering too many individuals'.
