US, Taliban talks ‘Very Sensitive’: Kay

The NATO Senior Civilian Representative to Afghanistan Nicholas Kay says the next round of the US and Taliban talks are "very sensitive" and the alliance remains committed to continue providing support to Afghanistan.

In an interview, he said Taliban must be ready for intra-Afghan negotiations, including with the Afghan government.

He said on the upcoming presidential elections that Afghanistan should have good quality elections.

He said the Independent Election Commission is working hard to draw from many lessons learned on the occasion of last year elections.

Meanwhile, the NATO Secretary Jens Stoltenberg has said a real peace process is taking place in Afghanistan and the international community is closer to a peace deal there.
