Prospect of negotiated peace in Afghanistan ‘never been more real’ – UN mission chief

Head of the U.N. peace mission for Afghanistan Tadamichi Yamamoto has said a negotiated end to the Afghan conflict has never been more real than it is now.

He said appointment of a team to negotiate the Taliban to end their terrorist campaign, and the announcement of a peace advisory board representing a broad range of political views, together with recent initiatives by key international partners are important milestones achieved over recent months to end the 17-year long conflict in Afghanistan.
