US President Donald Trump warned the Afghan Taliban against breach of the peace agreement, which was signed earlier on Saturday. “If bad things happen, we'll go back,” AFP reported him as saying.

Addressing a press conference in Washington, President Trump said all parties to the Afghan war were now tired and he was bringing his soldiers home. He congratulated Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani on signing of the peace agreement between the Afghan Taliban and the United States in Doha, Qatar on Saturday. He said the peace agreement was result of 18-month talks between the stakeholders. He said the US was working to end the long Afghan war and bring soldiers home. He described the US soldiers as world’s best fighters.

Switching over to the spread of coronavirus in the world, Trump said the virus has claimed 2,800 lives across the globe so far. He said that 85,000 cases of coronavirus infection have been reported in the entire world so far and the number of infected people in the US is 22. He said the number of coronavirus patients in the US could surge. He said that 15 of the coronavirus patients in the US were on way to recovery. He said the United States was ready to deal with any situation. He said that China too was making efforts to contain the virus. He said the first coronavirus fatality on the US soil was a woman in her late 50s. He said he would meet big pharma groups on Monday over coronavirus.

In a related development, the United States urged Americans to avoid areas of Italy and South Korea hardest hit by coronavirus.
