The president of the United States held talks on the situation in Afghanistan, with the presence of Vice President Mike Pens, Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Committee of the United States Armed Forces, Secretary of State Mike Pampy, and CIA Chief Jenna Hapsup yesterday. E and John Bolton, National Security Advisor, discussed Afghanistan behind closed doors.
A White House official who asked for anonymity, the Associated Press reported that they were joined together by the Afghan National Security Advisor, Hamidullah Mohib, who spoke in a secret secretary room called “Tank.”
Hamdullah Mohib, a national security adviser in Afghanistan, has criticized the US government, which has marginalized the Afghan government and legitimized armed networks.
According to the Associated Press, the Taliban has urged US authorities to expel all their troops from Afghanistan within five months, according to a report from the Associated Press. But the United States is asking them to give them 18 months.
The behind-the-scenes talks are the same as a day before Zalmai Khalilzad, the special envoy to Afghanistan, had announced talks with the Taliban. But nothing has been said about any terms and conditions.
