WASHINGTON – United States President Donald Trump on Friday announced that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo would witness the signing of a US-Taliban agreement on a withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan.

The agreement is due to be signed in Doha on Saturday.

Trump in a statement also called on the Taliban and the Afghan government to “seize this opportunity for peace,” and said that if they fulfill their commitments, “We will have a powerful path forward to end the war in Afghanistan and bring our troops home.”
