U.S. Talks With Taliban Negotiate Withdrawal of 4,000 Troops from Afghanistan

The U.S. is nearing a deal with the Taliban to draw down about 4,000 troops from Afghanistan.

The draw down of the troops comes as part of negotiations to make peace.

Taliban leaders say it is a good first step, but warns all U.S. forces must leave in order to resolve the conflict.

Peace talks between the Taliban and U.S. were shut down by President Trump in September and only resumed last weekend.

Qatar is hosting the talks and still remains hopeful of an agreement.

There is no timetable on when a deal could be announced, but the Trump administrations says they are close.
