US Rejoins Negotiations with Taliban in Doha
Reporter: Firdous Rasouli
According to Tolo News, US sources have confirmed that peace talks in Qatar with the Taliban have resumed. Talks in Qatar were canceled two months ago by US President Donald Trump.
Reliable sources from the Americans now say that the talks have resumed this time around because of the decline in violence and the ceasefire in Afghanistan.
Peace talks began in Doha, Qatar, after US Special Envoy Zalmai Khalilzad met with senior government officials, especially former President Hamid Karzai, on a two-day trip.
Earlier, on December 4, the US State Department had said that Mr. Khalilzad should resume peace talks and discuss the first step toward a cease-fire and reducing violence.
