Prominent US Senator Wants Afghanistan War End
“American troops have been in Afghanistan for nearly 18 years, Iraq since 2003 and in Syria since 2015," he tweeted.
“The American people do not want endless war,” Sanders said. “Congress must reassert its Constitutional authority over the use of force and responsibly end these interventions.”
Senders remarks come at a time as the US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad, who is leading the talks with the Taliban members for the fifth time in Qatar since his appointment last September, said on Feb. 28 that he had “productive” discussions with the group in Doha.
Taliban sources on Monday said the US and the Taliban negotiators have advanced towards reaching agreement on some key disputed issues.
The Afghan government, which has been out of these talks due to the persistent refusal by the Taliban, on Saturday called on Afghan politicians and people from different layers of the society to introduce their delegates for a national and inclusive negotiating team which will conduct peace talks on behalf of Afghans.
Presidential Palace said the final agreement on any topic relevant to peace will be determined by the Afghan government.
