The signing could help President Donald Trump fulfill a key campaign promise to extract America from its “endless wars.”
Under the agreement, the U.S. will begin withdrawing thousands of troops.
However, US will do so in exchange for Taliban commitments to prevent Afghanistan from being a launchpad for terrorist attacks.
Earlier, Afghan Taliban ordered its fighters to halt attacks.
While talking to the media in Kabul, Taliban’s spokesman, Zabiullah Mujahid disclosed this.
He said that the Taliban ordered all its fighters to refrain from any kind of attack ahead of signing of an agreement with the US diplomats aimed at bringing peace to Afghanistan.
He also expressed hope that the US remain committed to its promises during the negotiation and peace deal.
