The US Peace Envoy to Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad has said the latest round of talks with the Taliban have been the most productive.

According to an American Embassy spokesman, Khalilzad is in Beijing for a meeting amid signs of new momentum in efforts to end Afghanistan’s 17-year war.

The spokesman gave no further details about the visit by Zalmay Khalilzad, but it comes just days after he said that for the first time he can report “substantive” progress on all four issues key to a peace agreement.
