Afghan Taliban spokesman Mujahid said Wednesday that the new round of Taliban-U.S. talks in Doha, Qatar, has not made significant progress and the talks are still ongoing.
According to the Afghan Pajwak News Agency, Mujahid issued a statement on the 3rd that the issues involved were very sensitive and negotiations were proceeding carefully. The two sides are discussing in detail the withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan and the non-use of Afghan territory to harm other countries.
Mujahid said that the negotiations are still under way, and the two sides have not reached consensus on the draft agreement.
It is reported that the round of negotiations began in Doha on February 25.
In late January, the United States Government held talks with representatives of the Afghan Taliban in Doha, where both sides allegedly made progress on issues such as achieving a ceasefire in Afghanistan.
In 2001, the United States launched the war in Afghanistan after the September 11 terrorist attacks, overthrowing the Taliban regime that the United States identified as sheltering Al Qaeda. The post-war situation in Afghanistan continued to be turbulent. With the Taliban growing in Afghanistan in recent years, the U.S. government has had to choose to negotiate with it.
