A peace treaty between the U.S. and the Taliban could be on the horizon if everyone can keep the peace for this next week. Seven days of peace has begun, and if successful, the signing of the first phases of a peace agreement will take place. Taliban negotiators commented that “a suitable security situation would lay the groundwork for peace across the country with the withdrawal of all foreign forces.” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg also commented and praised the steps that have been taken toward peace. The Afghan government and president were not involved in the decision but mentioned their desire for diminished violence.
