Taliban accused the US president of causing harm to Afghanistan peace talks.
"Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan [Taliban’s shadow government] has the intention & capacity for a resolution. Negotiation process has been harmed by Trump 's tweet, numerous US demands & quarrel b/w US & Kabul officials,” Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said on Twitter.
On Monday, Pompeo blamed the insurgents for being unable to demonstrate seriousness towards peace.
“So what we are demanding now is demonstrable evidence of their will and capacity to reduce violence, to take down the threat so the inter-Afghan talks [...] will have a less violent context,” he said at a news conference in Uzbekistan.
“We’re hopeful we can achieve that, but we’re not there yet, and work certainly remains,” Pompeo said.
