Kabul (BNA) Zalmay Khalilzad U.S. special representative for Afghanistan reconciliation said that U.S. seek a comprehensive peace agreement, not a withdrawal agreement in Afghanistan.
According to BNA report, Khalilzad in a series of tweet said; “As we (U.S.) prepare for the next round of talks with the Taliban, important to remember we seek a comprehensive peace agreement, not a withdrawal agreement in Afghanistan.”
A comprehensive peace agreement is made-up of four inter-connected parts such as counter-terrorism, troop withdrawal, intra-Afghan negotiations that lead to a political settlement and a comprehensive and permanent ceasefire, Mr. Khalilzad added.
This is a framework which the Taliban accept, as I’ve said numerous occasions, nothing is agreed until everything is agreed, Khalilzad underlined.
It is supposed that the seventh round of peace talks between Taliban and U.S. negotiators will take place next week in Doha and the two sides are likely to agree on one or two of the four key issues.
