Trump: Peace talks with Taliban are dead

US peace talks with the Taliban in Afghanistan are dead, US President Donald Trump declared Monday.

Trump defended his decision to set up a secret meeting with Taliban leaders at Camp David only to cancel it after the Taliban claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing in Kabul last week that killed a dozen people, including one American soldier.

Trump said the US wants to withdraw its 14,000 troops from Afghanistan, but at the right time.
