With the start of the 8th round of US talks with the Taliban, Afghanistan parliamentarians voiced their concerns about the consequences of a possible deal, saying that possible US agreement with the Taliban cannot guarantee the end of war and violence in Afghanistan.

Iran Press/Asia: Afghanistan parliamentarians reiterated that the achievements in Afghanistan, such as human rights and the country's constitution have been neglected in negotiations between the US and the Taliban.

Former president of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai, said that 17 years of insecurity in Afghanistan with the presence of foreign troops meant America's defeat, reported Iran Press.

He went on to add that without talks between Afghans and also agreements between the neighbors, especially Iran, the peace in Afghanistan would not be sustainable.

Karzai also criticized US President Donald Trump's offensive remarks to the Afghan people during a meeting with UN secretary-general's special representative for Afghanistan, Tadamichi Yamamoto, and urged the UN envoy to raise concerns of the people over Trump's remarks to the secretary-general of the United Nations.

Donald Trump claimed in an offensive speech that if the United States wants to win the war in Afghanistan, 10 million Afghans would be killed and the country would be destroyed within three or four days.

Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid announced the start of the eighth round of talks with US representatives in Doha, Qatar on Saturday, but details are not available. 104/218
