The U.S. envoy for Afghan peace Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad will visit Delhi after making ‘excellent progress’ in the talks on a potential deal with Taliban.

Ambassador Khalilzad said in a Twitter post “Building on excellent progress in Kabul last week, I’ve spent the last few days in Doha, focused on the remaining issues in completing a potential deal with the Taliban that would allow for a conditions-based troop withdrawal. We have made excellent progress.”

Furthermore, Ambassador Khalilzad said he will travel to Delhi later today for pre-scheduled meetings to further build international consensus in support of the Afghan peace process.

Meanwhile, Ambassador Khalilzad said his team and Taliban representatives will continue to discuss technical details as well as steps and mechanisms required for a successful implementation of the four-part agreement that they have been working toward since his appointment.

He also added “Agreement on these details is essential.”
