The Sheikh of Qatar Tamim bin Hamid Al-Thani and the U.S. President Donald Trump held talks on U.S.-Taliban peace talks in Doha.

Sheikh Al-Thani called President Trump on Thursday and discussed “strategic cooperation relations between the two countries and the latest regional and international developments,” Reuters reported, citing the State-run news agency of Qatar.

The source further added that the two leaders also discussed the U.S.-Taliban peace talks that Doha hosted recently.

The Qatar State-run QNA news agency has not provided further details regarding the discussions between the two leaders.

This comes as the U.S. envoy for Afghan peace Zalmay Khalilzad concluded the 8th round of peace talks with Taliban in Qatar on Monday.

Calling the 8th round of peace talks as ‘excellent’, 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.
