Taliban and US sign peace deal to end America's longest war

The US and the Taliban have signed a peace agreement to end the Afghanistan War, the longest war of the United States.

After months of negotiations in the capital of Qatar, US officials and Taliban representatives signed the final peace treaty.

The agreement was signed in Doha in the presence of leaders from Pakistan, India, Indonesia, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.

According to the agreement signed, the United States should withdraw their troops gradually from Afghanistan.

The two sides have long wrangled over the US demand for a ceasefire before the final peace agreement was signed. 

Earlier on Saturday, the Taliban ordered all its fighters to halt fighting and "refrain from attacks".
