US-Taliban Negotiations in Qatar Enter Fifth Day

DOHA – Negotiations between the Taliban and United States officials in Qatar entered a fifth day in an attempt to end the 17-year war in Afghanistan.
The negotiations mark the highest-level Talks between the two sides since the US ramped up peace efforts last year.
Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar the co-founder of Taliban, had reached Qatar and joined the talks as the new head of the Taliban team. He met the US special Envoy Zalmay Khalilzad for the first time on Monday.
“The issue of talks is sensitive and moving forward very carefully. During January talks both sides agreed to two points, the pullout of foreign forces and no use of Afghan soil against others and this time there is detail discussion on these issues,” Mujaheed, the spokesperson for Taliban said.
He added there was no consensus reached on draft agreement as yet. The negotiation has been moving ahead with this reality and other publications and statements are far from reality, he remarked.
