Bolton excluded from Afghan policy decisions after irritating Trump: Reports

TEHRAN, Aug. 31 (MNA) – White House National Security Adviser John Bolton has been kept out of any discussions related to the ongoing US-Taliban negotiations because his opposition to diplomacy has irritated President Donald Trump, US media reported.

Bolton has called for an expanded military presence in Afghanistan and also opposed Trump’s efforts to negotiate with North Korea and any potential engagement with Iran, the Washington Post said on Friday, citing unnamed officials.

The ninth round of talks between the United States and the Taliban in the Qatari capital of Doha entered its eighth day on Thursday.
