US election 2020 latest: Taliban call on Joe Biden to stick to US troop withdrawal deal

President Donald Trump had made ending the war in Afghanistan a major campaign promise

The Taliban in Afghanistan called on the incoming administration of US President-elect Joe Biden to honour the February agreement to withdraw US troops.

Mr Biden is getting to work, setting up his transition team and hinting at quick measures after he takes office on January 20.

On Monday, Mr Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris met a newly formed coronavirus advisory board.

The task force is made up of doctors, scientists and public health experts.

Mr Biden addressed the US people after the briefing, telling Americans: "I implore you to wear a mask."

President Donald Trump is yet to accept defeat and the broader Republican party is split over accepting the result.

Here is the latest from the US transition process:
