President Donald Trump met with top advisers on Friday to review negotiations with the Taliban on a US troop pullout from Afghanistan and the potential for a political settlement between the warring sides.[BRIDGEWATER] President Donald Trump met with top advisers on Friday to review negotiations with the Taliban on a US troop pullout from Afghanistan and the potential for a political settlement between the warring sides.

The US military presence dates to 2001 when then-President George W Bush invaded in pursuit of al Qaeda and ousted the Taliban rulers who had given Osama bin Laden and his followers a safe haven in which they plotted the Sept 11, 2001, attacks. US Senator Lindsey Graham, a Trump ally, said any deal should allow the United States to maintain a military presence in Afghanistan to pursue such groups.

Both sides had raised expectations of being close to finalising an agreement prior to convening the latest round of talks.
