Taliban and American negotiators are meeting in Qatar for what a Taliban spokesman called “fruitful discussions” that are expected to continue for “several days.”
Axar.az reports citing Washington Post that the two sides “discussed the signing of the agreement and the ceremony for it,” Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen tweeted Friday.
It’s unclear what agreement Shaheen is referring to. Neither Shaheen nor the State Department responded to requests for comment.
Negotiators reached a draft deal in September that was abruptly scrapped by President Trump. That agreement would have required the withdrawal of thousands of American troops from Afghanistan in exchange for a Taliban pledge not to harbor terrorists.
