United States' Defence Secretary Mark Esper on Sunday arrived here with the aim to reach a peace agreement with Afghanistan.

"The aim is to still get a peace agreement at some point, a political agreement, that is the best way forward," Esper told reporters, as quoted by the Voice of America.

On September 8, Washington called off the US-Taliban peace deal after the terrorist organisation claimed the responsibility for a bomb blast in Kabul that took the life of an American soldier.

Taliban attack in Kabul on September 6, which killed 12 including a US soldier, prompted US President Donald Trump to pull out, saying the group "probably don't have the power to negotiate." (ANI)
