U.S.-Taliban talks

The Taliban point out the gap is shortening in discussions with Washington’s special peace envoy over a schedule for the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan.

The 2 sides are ongoing to meet in Qatar, in which the insurgent activity retains a political office.

In a voice message delivered Saturday to The Associated Press, the Taliban spokesperson in Doha states that both sides have offered new proposals for drawing down US and also NATO forces.  This might be a significant primary step toward a deal to end almost 18 years of war and America’s ever longest military involvement.

US peace envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, yet, continued to press for a cease fire, tweeting Friday: “It is time to put down arms.” The Taliban have refused any cease-fire until US and NATO troops retreat.
