Qatar: Afghan regime, Taliban negotiators meet in Doha to discuss peace

Source: Yahoo! News

“Afghan government and Taliban negotiators met in Qatar’s capital Doha this week to discuss the peace process, the first known meeting in weeks after negotiations largely stalled earlier this year. Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen said in a statement on Twitter on Wednesday that the heads of both teams, along with some of their negotiators, had met the previous day in Doha. ‘They discussed topics of the agenda, accelerating the Afghan negotiations process and reaching mutual understanding in this regard,’ he said. … Negotiators had started in Doha in September to find a way to end decades of war. But the talks stalled after a few rounds and violence has escalated since the United States started its final pullout of troops.” (06/09/21)
