The U.S. envoy for Afghan peace Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad also rejected the media reports regarding the U.S.-Taliban agreement on interim government setup.

Ambassador Khalilzad said in a Twitter post “As the Taliban spokesperson stated earlier, we have had no discussions about an interim government. Governance decisions are for Afghans to make in intra-Afghan negotiations.”

Suhail Shaheen, a spokesman for the political office of Taliban in Qatar had earlier rejected the reports as ‘untrue’.

This comes as reports emerged earlier today suggesting that the U.S. and Taliban have reached to an agreement to establish an interim government.

Certain media outlets reported that the U.S. and Taliban representatives have reached to an agreement to establish an interim government having a 14-month term.

The reports emerged amid ongoing negotiations between the U.S. and Taliban representatives in Qatari capital of Doha.
