US intensifies attacks against Taliban after disruption in negotiations

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The United States intensified attacks against the Taliban after the disruption of the negotiation process, Pentagon chief Mark Esper told reporters.

Earlier, US President Donald Trump, despite the negotiation of a peace agreement, announced the cancellation of peace talks with the radical Taliban movement after the Taliban claimed responsibility for another terrorist attack in Afghanistan.

“We intensified our attacks against the Taliban, as negotiations were interrupted. You know, the president spoke about this publicly – we significantly accelerated the pace (of operations against the Taliban – ed.),” Esper said.
