BREAKING: Afghanistan's warring sides start negotiations in Qatar for the first time aimed at ending decades of war.

Abdullah Abdullah, Chairman of the High Council for National Reconciliation, waves as he boards his plane at Kabul International Airport in Kabul, Afghanistan, Friday, Sept. 11, 2020. Officials on both sides of Afghanistan's protracted conflict say efforts are ramping up for the start of intra-Afghan negotiations, a critical next step to a U.S. negotiated peace deal with the Taliban.

The discussions are important in the search for lasting peace that will also provide an exit for U.S. and NATO troops after nearly 19 years. Among the government-appointed negotiators are four women, who vow to preserve women’s rights in any power-sharing deal with the fundamentalist Taliban. This includes the right to work, education and participation in political life __ all denied women when the Taliban ruled Afghanistan for five years. The Taliban were ousted in 2001 by a U.S.-led coalition for harboring Osama bin Laden, the architect of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on America.

Political turmoil in Kabul further delayed talks as Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and his rival in controversial presidential polls the year before, Abdullah Abdullah, squabbled over who won, with both declaring victory.

No, they're 'Warring Afghans' b/c superpowers, like USSR & U.S., funded Afghans to fight those Afghans the superpowers deemed bad guys. Also, AP figured out many members of Afghan govt share ultra conservative views w/ Taliban.

The Taliban believe that the other 'warring side', the Government in Kabul, is a 'puppet' of the United States. And having this guy, Pompeo, showing up to butt his head into things, will do nothing to dispel that belief.

ImranKhanPTI in 2011 in a public gathering addressed USA. 'When PTI will form Govt we'll help you in leaving Afghanistan through peace dialogue but we won't be part of any military solution, Imran Khan'. Today Taliban and Afghan Government talking to each other in Doha.

Wonder who had a hand in that. apnews knows. Thank you POTUS and company.

Biden and his warmongering crew are going to screw this all up and end up starting more wars in the middle east.

Wow. How many Nobel prizes is President Trump going to be nominated for?

Republican negotiations... Not Iran, not North Korea, not China, not Russia, but powerhouses UAE and Bahrain! 😂

Except that Trump will jump out and claim all the credits soon ;)

Thank you President Trump and team for getting the sides together to broker the deal!! 🇺🇸

Wow, the AP printing an actual news story for a change. More of this please.

Another Trump victory! (Sarcasm font not included)

Will the peace deal remove those Russian bounties on our troops?

Good move.... Peace is paramount

Thank you president Trump.

You misspelled genocide

And trump released a bunch of taliban terrorists that killed American soldiers on the anniversary of 911.

I’m loving this kind of development! LoveAndPeace to the whole world Let’s keep on going like this and look after the environment too 🙏🏼

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.

Trumps trying to real hard to earn his political points. It's a good thing he's brokered the deals he has, but to me that really does nothing to out weigh the cost of having him in office. Not to mention this shit still has to play out.

COVID DEATHS March 1 – 1 Dead April 1 – 6,460 Dead May 1 – 67,044 Dead June 1 – 109,509 Dead July 1 - 131,013 Dead Aug 1 - 156,764 Dead Sept 12 - 195,958 Dead

Who cares at this point.

Somehow Donald Trump will take credit for this.

Interesting. Gulf countries seek peace with their “so called” adversaries, and offer a platform for peace negotiations for others. They have a vision that prosperity could only be achieved through peace.

Russia wants tatertot for potus bigly

Cough cough bullshit cough

trying to be positive but its hard to ever really forget what a massive waste of money and lives the entire thing was

and I'm sure trump will find a way to take credit for it

The Taliban don't make peace because warring is their cultural pastime.

Man that seems like a colossal waste of 19 years, human life and trillions and trillions of dollars

Trump yet again. Still the left are blind.

Nobel prize when?

Trump 2020 🇺🇸
