US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad has held talks with Taliban political representatives in Qatar on ways to accelerate the release of prisoners, ranging from intra-Afghan dialogue and full implementation of the agreement, Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen said on Thursday.
Today, Friday, Pakistani media reported that Zalmay Khalilzad, the US special envoy to Afghanistan, had arrived in Pakistan.
This happened because the Taliban insisted that the US had not fulfilled its commitment to guarantee the release of 5000 Taliban prisoners in accordance with their agreement signed at the end of February. They also accuse the US of violating the agreement by carrying out attacks on Taliban positions.
The Taliban have refused to take part in the intra-Afghan dialogue unless 5,000 of their prisoners are released. Talks are scheduled to begin on March 10.
