ISLAMABAD - United States has bowed down before Afghan Taliban demands on the peace talks continuation.

The Taliban have confirmed that its delegation has held talks with the US representatives in Doha, Qatar after the US side accepted the agenda tabled by the group for discussion.

"Following American acceptance of the agenda of ending invasion of Afghanistan and preventing Afghanistan from being used against other countries in the future, talks with American representatives took place today in Doha, the capital of Qatar.

The session will also continue tomorrow," said Zabiullah Mujahid, a spokesman for the Taliban .

This comes shortly after US Special Envoy for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad's visit to Islamabad where he met senior Pakistani civilian and military officials including Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmoud Qureshi Qureshi, as well as Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua and Chief of Army Staff Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa, to help cement concrete steps for the peace process in Afghanistan.

"We’re heading in the right direction with more steps by Pakistan coming that will lead to concrete results," Khalilzad tweeted after meeting top Pakistani officials in Islamabad on Sunday.
