Munich, February 14
The United States has reached a reduction of violence agreement with the Taliban that could lead to a US troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, a senior administration official said on Friday.
The official told reporters at a security conference in Munich that the seven-day period of a reduction of violence has yet to begin.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary Mark Esper met with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani during the conference on Friday.
The announcement came a day after US President Donald Trump said there was a "good chance" of reaching an agreement with the Taliban on a reduction of US troops in Afghanistan.
An agreement on a major troop withdrawal would be a boost for Trump, who has repeatedly promised to stop "endless wars," as he seeks re-election to a second term in November. Reuters
