Negotiators for the US and the Taliban insurgents have reached an “agreement in principle” on key issues for a peace deal to put an end to the conflic in Afghanistan, US envoy Zalmay Khalilzad said following a six days of talks with the Taliban in Qatar.
Khalilzad noted that the framework of a peace deal – “which still has to be fleshed out” – would see Taliban members commit to guaranteeing that Afghan territory is not used as a “platform for international terrorist groups or individuals”. He added that the deal could lead to a full pullout of US troops in return for a ceasefire and Taliban talks with the Kabul government.
