The US and the Taliban have signed a peace agreement aimed at ending the 18-year war in Afghanistan, America’s longest. The signing could help Donald Trump fulfil a key campaign promise to extract America from its “endless wars”. Under the agreement, the US will begin withdrawing thousands of troops in exchange for Taliban commitments to prevent Afghanistan from being a launchpad for terrorist attacks. If the Taliban meet their commitments, all US troops would leave in 14 months.
