May 21, 2020 23:15 IST

The US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad had a what he called a ‘constructive meeting’ with senior Taliban leaders in Doha. Both the sides discussed counter-terrorism, intra-Afghan talks and the withdrawal of American forces from the country under the peace deal. Stating that innocent Afghans have borne far too much and for too long the costs of this war, Khalilzad tweeted that he told the Talibs violence by all sides must fall. He said on the US-Taliban agreement, "the Taliban expressed their commitment to the agreement and its implementation".
