The US special envoy for peace in Afghanistan says he considers the recent trip to Afghanistan “productive,” adding that they are approaching an important stage in the Afghan peace process.
Zalmay Khalilzad traveled to Kabul over the past two days and met with government leaders, politicians and the US ambassador to Kabul.
“We’re approaching an important stage in the Afghan Peace Process,” wrote US envoy Khalilzad in a post on Twitter. “Wrapped up two days of consultations in #Kabul. Productive trip.”
He said he consulted with US Ambassador to Kabul John Bass, General Miller, former President Hamid Karzai, women activists and other political leaders during the trip.
“We discussed efforts to achieve reduced violence and pave the way to intra-Afghan negotiations,” the Twitter post added.
The US special envoy for peace in Afghanistan has traveled to Kabul as the new round of peace talks with Taliban representatives has resumed after it was called-off by US President.
Earlier in the progression of the new round of peace talks, the armed Taliban said the process of the new talks was good and positive.
