WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said he spoke with a leader of the Afghan Islamist group Taliban on Tuesday and they had a very good talk.

Trump made the remark to reporters at the White House days after the United States and Taliban signed a troop withdrawal agreement.

A Taliban spokesman said earlier the group’s chief negotiator Mullah Baradar Akhund had held a phone call with Trump.
