Sources within the Afghan Taliban revealed on Thursday that their negotiators would hold the first round of peace talks with U.S. officials in Qatar later in the day. Reuters was there:
“The first session will take place today in Qatar and then there would be another session on Friday. Let us see what happens as talks before did not yield any results,” a senior member of the Afghan Taliban said by telephone from Qatar.
There was no immediate comment available from U.S. or Qatari officials.
