Amid the on-going clashes all over Afghanistan, Kabul officials are going to visit Doha for another round of negotiations with representatives of the Taliban.


On July 13, Tolo news reported that an 11-member team of Afghan politicians were expected to travel to Doha by the end of this week.



The delegation should reportedly include: Abdullah Abdullah, Hamid Karzai, Yunus Qanooni, Karim Khalili, Mohammad Mohaqiq, Salam Rahimi, Abdul Rashid Dostum, Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, Sayed Sadat Mansoor Naderi, Enayatullah Baligh and Fatima Gailani.


This comes as Abdullah Abdullah, the head of the High Council for National Reconciliation, and former president Hamid Karzai, said that Kabul expected important steps to be taken in the peace talks within the next few days.


The meeting will take place following the last week’s talks in Tehran.


“Some politicians, including former president Karzai’s close aide Abdul Karim Khurram, said the meeting was “highly constructive” during which the two sides shared recommendations with each other.” – Tolo news reported.
