(Worthy News) - U.S. peace envoy Zalmay Khalilzad is heading to Qatar to resume talks with Taliban negotiators and to Kabul to meet with Afghan leaders, amid reports indicating a deal could be close to end the near 18-year war in Afghanistan.
The U.S. State Department said Khalilzad was departing on August 20 for the two countries and that additional stops could be included in his trip.
In the Qatari capital, Doha, Khalilzad "will resume talks with the Taliban as part of an overall effort to facilitate a peace process that ends the conflict in Afghanistan,” the statement said. [ Source: Radio Free Europe (Read More...) ]
