Afghan Peace Deal Receives ‘Tremendous Support’: US President Donald Trump

The landmark Afghan peace deal has received “tremendous support”, President Donald Trump said on Monday in India, ahead of a possible agreement between the US and the Taliban in the war-torn country on February 29.

The US is set to sign a peace deal with the Taliban on Saturday provided that a week-long reduction in violence across the strife-torn country holds, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a recent statement. The Taliban also released a statement confirming the plan to sign a peace deal that day.

“It has received tremendous support,” Trump told reporters as he flew on Air Force One from Ahmedabad to Agra, according to CNN.

Trump’s remarks came a day after he said Taliban in Afghanistan were “tired” of fighting and wanted to make a peace deal with America.
