The phone call between the two leaders comes days after Taliban released two professors as part of a prisoner swap deal between the group and the Afghan government, under which the latter released three terrorists, including Anas Haqqani, from Bagram prison.
The exchange of prisoners emerged as the fresh hope of revival of the peace talks after weeks of the impasse. Trump last month abruptly ended the talks with Taliban citing continued attacks by the terrorist groups
During the phone call, Trump emphasized the need for a ceasefire as a precondition for peace.
Trump also said that in order for the peace process to succeed, the Afghan government's management and involvement are needed and must begin from now on.
