Time to put down arms, embrace peace, Khalilzad tells Taliban

The U.S. Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation has told Taliban to put down arms, stop violence and embrace. “In our opening session, I underscored to the Talibs that the Afghan people, who are their brothers & sisters, want this war to end. It is time to put down arms, stop the violence, & embrace peace,” Khalilzad said in a Twitter post.
He also added “Peace will require that we find common-ground on four inter-connected issues: troop withdrawal, counter-terrorism assurances, intra-Afghan dialogue & negotiations, and reduction in violence leading to a comprehensive ceasefire. Nothing will be final until we agree on all 4 issues.” The sixth round of peace talks between the U.S. and Taliban representatives kicked off on Wednesday in Doha, the capital city of Qatar.
