A new attempt to revive inter-Afghan negotiations is being made against the background of the completion of the withdrawal of American troops from the country.
A high-ranking delegation of the Afghan government, which will include the head of the Reconciliation Council, will meet with representatives of the Taliban in Doha to give impetus to the stalled peace process, two Afghan officials said.
The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the topic, said that senior Taliban leaders are expected to participate in the talks, which may begin on Friday.
The Taliban’s political office is located in Doha, the capital of Qatar.
Another attempt to revive the peace talks is being made at a time when the United States has almost completed its “never-ending war” in Afghanistan.
General Scott Miller, who resigned from the post of commander of the US troops, previously warned that the increase in violence significantly reduces the chances of Afghanistan’s peaceful end to the long-term war.
