According to reports the Taliban on 30 December denied they had agreed to declare a ceasefire in talks with the United States but said discussions were on to reduce violence in Afghanistan. Declaration of a ceasefire or at least reduction in violence has been one of the main demands of the Afghans, particularly of the government in Kabul before a peace deal is signed between the Taliban and the US.
