US temporarily reducing violence in Afghanistan

The United States revealed it established a "seven-day reduction of violence" in Afghanistan in an effort to get closer to achieving a peace deal with the Taliban, possibly bringing the Afghan war to an end.

Earlier, US President Donald Trump offered the Taliban a peace plan contingent on the fundamentalist organization cutting ties with terrorist groups in the region and decreasing violence.

Meanwhile, the Taliban warned Washington the peace talks will not continue if the US doesn't first commit to a "seven-day reduction of violence."
