The U.S. says it has reached a deal with the Taliban in Afghanistan that lays out what could be the first steps toward ending America’s longest-running war.

Administration officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity at the Munich Security Conference, say there will be a seven-day “reduction in violence” but did not specify when it would start. The seven days are meant as an initial confidence-building measure.

The article goes on to state the following:

The next step would involve the signing of an agreement between the U.S and the Taliban. That would pave the way for intra-Afghan talks to determine the future of Afghanistan and the role the Taliban could play in it.

The Wall Street Journal reported:

“Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Mr. Trump on Thursday expressed optimism that work on a peace deal could begin. The senior official on Friday acknowledged the existence potential ‘spoilers’ of any agreement.
‘[H]aving a military presence in Afghanistan is not an end in itself for the United States,’ the senior administration official said.

“The reduction-in-violence agreement covers elements such as roadside bombs, suicide bombs and rocket attacks, the U.S. official said. The agreement spans the entire country and encompasses forces of the Afghan government, the official added, crediting Mr. Trump for getting the Taliban to agree to these terms.”
