United States President Donald Trump said on Monday that the U.S. would not hold any talks with Taliban as they were killing innocents in Afghanistan. 'They are killing people; innocents are being killed left and right. Bombing in middle of children, in the middle of families, bombing all over Afghanistan. So we don't want any talks with the Taliban,' President Trump said here at a lunch with UN Security Council ambassadors.

The U.S President's remarks came after the Taliban had claimed responsibility for Sunday's suicide car bombing in Kabul. The attack claimed 103 lives and wounded 163 others. President Donald Trump had called for "decisive action" by all countries against the Taliban after the attack. "All countries should take decisive action against the Taliban and the terrorist infrastructure that supports them. The Taliban's cruelty will not prevail," RadioFreeEurope Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) quoted Trump as saying in a statement, issued hours after the attack.

This bombing is the latest in a string of deadly attacks that had taken place in Afghanistan during the past 10 days. Last Wednesday, an office of 'Save The Children' organisation in Jalalabad city of Nangarhar province came under attack, just four days after terrorists stormed Kabul's Intercontinental Hotel and killed 18 people, including 12 foreigners.
