US-Taliban Peace Talks End

KABUL: The sixth round of US-Taliban talks ended in Qatar on Thursday after “positive and constructive” negotiations, an insurgent spokesman said.

“Some progress” had been made at the sixth round of peace talks and that the foes would meet again for another round of discussions,” said Taliban spokesman.

The talks, in which the United States has also sought assurances the Taliban will not allow militant groups to use Afghanistan to stage attacks, began on April 30 in Qatar’s capital Doha.

The negotiations included the Taliban’s political chief Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar and a U.S. team led by special envoy Zalmay Khalilzad.
