Afghan peace agreement seems to be vague: US report

( MENAFN ) A recent US intelligence report established that the visions for a discussed settlement to finish current conflicts between the Taliban and the Afghan government are indistinct as the US get ready to leave the South Asian nation.

The Director of National Intelligence's annual threat assessment report said that "We assess that prospects for a peace deal will remain low during the next year. The Taliban is likely to make gains on the battlefield, and the Afghan Government will struggle to hold the Taliban at bay if the coalition withdraws support."

It further included that "Kabul continues to face setbacks on the battlefield, and the Taliban is confident it can achieve military victory."

Conflicts have intensified melodramatically throughout Afghanistan since September when the US and Taliban signed a deal to end the US existence, and begin intra-Afghan talks to end nearly 20 years of war.
