The US and the Taliban have signed an “agreement for bringing peace” to Afghanistan after more than 18 years of conflict.

The US and Nato allies have agreed to withdraw all troops within 14 months if the militants uphold the deal.

President Trump said the US was “working to finally end America’s longest war and bring our troops back home”.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and leaders of the hardline Islamic movement attended the signing ceremony in Doha in Qatar.

Under the agreement, the militants also agreed not to allow al-Qaeda or any other extremist group to operate in the areas they control.

President Trump gave the initial details Saturday about the first death inside the United States from the new coronavirus, saying the victim was a woman in her 50s who had underlying health problems.

Trump said additional cases are likely in the United States but said the illness will be survivable for the vast majority who contract it. He called for calm and said he will meet at the White House on Monday with representatives of major drug companies about accelerated development of a vaccine.

Vice President Pence said the risk to most Americans remains low, as he announced additional travel restrictions on Iran, where the virus is spreading rapidly. On top of existing travel restrictions on that country, the United States will now exclude any foreign national who has visited Iran in the last 14 days, Pence said.

The State Department has also raised its warning about travel to Italy and South Korea, Pence said. The recommendation is now “do not travel to certain regions of both countries,” Pence said.

Pence and Trump addressed reporters in a hastily-called news conference at the White House. Trump assured Americans that “our country is prepared for any circumstance.”

“We are having very good initial feedback” about a vaccine, Trump said.
