April 18, 2019


A meeting between Taliban and Afghan politicians and civil society aimed at ending more than 17 years of war in Afghanistan has been postponed.

A senior government official said in Kabul that talks set to begin tomorrow (Friday) in Doha has been called off for now and details were being reworked.

Meanwhile, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said presence of some participants was completely against the list of what was agreed upon.

The Taliban have repeatedly refused to meet President Ashraf Ghani’s government, which they call a puppet regime but have held several rounds of peace talks with US officials.
