U.S. Peace Envoy Arrives in Kabul

Senior U.S. envoy Zalmay Khalilzad has arrived in Kabul for talks with Afghan leaders in his first trip to the Afghan capital since Biden took office.

Fraidoon Khwazoon, spokesman for the Afghan High Council for National Reconciliation, spoke to TKG, saying the U.S. top diplomat met with chairman of the peace council Abdullah Abdullah Monday morning.

The U.S. review of the Doha deal inked between the United States and the Taliban last year, speeding up the peace process, reduction in violence as well as achieving a political settlement through dialogue were the meeting deliberations, according to the spokesman.

Following his trip to the Afghan capital, Ambassador Khalilzad is set to travel to Doha and other countries in the region for Afghanistan’s peace process.

It was Khalilzad’s first trip to Afghanistan and the region under U.S. President Joe Biden. He remained on the job as peace negotiator after President-elect Joe Biden took office.
