US Taliban hold key talks on two important issues

DOHA - The United States and Taliban representatives began a new round of peace talks in Qatar today (Wednesday), aimed at securing a lasting peace agreement in Afghanistan.

The US special envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, who led the US delegation, has said the talks will ultimately focus on troops withdrawal; guarantees against terrorism; talks between the Taliban and the American-supported government of Afghanistan to establish a path toward political settlement; and a lasting cease-fire.
