An official delegation from the Afghan government headed to Qatar yesterday to resume the second round of peace talks with the Taliban, government spokesman Nader Naderi said.
According to the New Khaleej, Naderi said the delegation is ready to resume “talks aiming to achieve permanent peace,” stressing that the main goal is to reach a “permanent ceasefire”.
The peace talks aim to end 42 years of armed struggle which started following the military coup in Afghanistan in 1978.
On 12 December 2020, talks between the Taliban and Afghanistan’s government started. They were suspended for a while due to differences and then renewed again.
