Afghanistan Likely to Delay Election as Trump Presses for Peace Talks

Afghanistan’s presidential election, scheduled for April, is likely to be delayed, underscoring the country’s fragility as war with the Taliban rages and the United States presses for peace talks.The officials suggested a lack of technical preparations justified a delay of at least three months, to avoid repeating the furious disputes and accusations of industrial-scale fraud that followed the previous presidential election, in 2014. But the move comes as the Trump administration is losing patience with the long war in Afghanistan, where about 14,000 American troops remain.
