Taliban, US Representatives Met in Qatar for Peace Talks

KABUL – A Taliban delegation had participated in a three-day meeting in Qatar with representatives of the United States to discuss a peaceful solution to the Afghan conflict, the rebel group confirmed on Monday.

“A high level delegation of the Islamic Emirate met with high level US delegation in Qatar on 14, 15 and 16 of November and held talks on a peaceful solution to the Afghan war,” Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid said in a statement.

He added that negotiations were in early stages and no agreement has been reached as yet.

“The Islamic Emirate presented actual facts regarding the current situation in Afghanistan, and emphasized on the (establishment of) sacred Islamic system and a real solution to the Afghan war,” concluded Mujahid.

The meetings took place one month after a delegation from the Taliban political office in Doha held their first meeting with the US special envoy for peace in Afghanistan Zalmay Khalilzad.

A week later, the second round of international consultations on the Afghan conflict took place in Moscow where Taliban representatives met with Afghan High Peace Council members.

The Taliban and Afghan authorities met in 2015 in Pakistan in its first and last meeting so far, as the process was suspended weeks later, after the news of the death of Taliban leader Mullah Omar was made public two years after he had died.

Since then, the Taliban have insisted on negotiating with the US, which continues to be present in Afghanistan to train and assist Afghan troops.
