Suhail Shaheen, a spokesperson for the Taliban's political office in Doha, said communication channels with the United States were still open and the militant group was still in touch with the American negotiators, reports Efe news.
"If Trump wants to stop talks, we will take the first way and they will soon regret it". "As far as I'm concerned, they're dead", Trump told reporters when asked about the talks.
If President Donald Trump's now-canceled plan for secret talks with Afghanistan'sTaliban insurgents on USA soil was stunning, the date chosen was perhaps even more so: days before the anniversary of 9/11, the reason for the war they were going to talk about ending.

"The Taliban has become convinced that we want to deal far more than they do", she continued, suggesting America's desire to bring its troops home had convinced the militants that they could extract a costly deal from the U.S. "If you don't talk to them, it's just going to continue". We wanted to leave (from Afghanistan) but we will leave in due time. The UN repeatedly calls for urgent need to seize opportunities for peace in the region.
However, whether because of last week's killing of a U.S. soldier, as he says, or due to wider misgivings, that goal now appears in tatters.
'But right now they're murdering too many people'.
Washington had hoped that a withdrawal of United States troops would lead to negotiations between the Taliban and Kabul on a more permanent peace.
The Taliban "are the people who are partially responsible for our loved ones dying and other Americans dying", Riches said, but "I'd like to see it end".
The objective is to make "the Afghan security forces stronger so that they can fight worldwide terrorism and create the conditions for peace", the official said.
