And while Washington hopes to secure a deal with the Taliban prior to the withdrawal of US forces, Zaid Hamid, a Defence Analyst at the independent think thank BrassTacks, told RT the soon to be resumed peace talks are virtually doomed to fail.

“There is no possibility that those [peace] talks will be successful, they are just a farce that is going on. In reality, on the ground the Taliban are trying to take up the initiative, [to take advantage] of US weaknesses. But the terms that the Taliban have given – the withdrawal of the extra-regional forces, the collapse of the Kabul regime – the conditions that have been given by the Taliban are such that they can never be accepted by the Americans or the Kabul regime. The peace talks mean nothing.”
