Nearly 70 delegates are attending the two-day gathering which has been organized by Germany and Qatar. The discussions in this gathering are aimed at putting an end to Afghanistan's 18 year old security crisis.
MojNews-Dozens of powerful Afghans resumed talks with the Taliban on Monday in Doha, where a possible cease-fire is on the table along with key issues such as women’s rights.
Stakes are high for the talks which follow a week of US-Taliban negotiations with both sides eyeing a resolution to the bloody 18-year conflict.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted that the Afghan gathering “has been a long time coming” and praised the country’s “government, civil society, women, and Taliban” for coming together.
Washington has said it wants to seal a political deal with the Taliban ahead of Afghan presidential polls due in September to allow foreign forces to begin to withdraw.
