A source in the Department of State has told BBC Pashto that the US-Taliban Doha talks led by the US special representative for Afghanistan Thomas West have been canceled.

As per the sources, US special representative for Afghan women Rina Amiri was also supposed to accompany Thomas West.

The US and Taliban were due to meet in the Qatari capital Doha on Saturday and Sunday and discuss economic issues along with other relevant matters.

The move comes after the interim government of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan decided not to open schools doors for teenage girls.

Meanwhile, Reuters has cited its sources in State Department saying the plane that was supposed to take the Taliban delegation led by the interim Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi from Kabul to Doha has not landed in the Afghan capital yet.

The “Doha Form” that was supposed to take place in the Qatari capital was due to pat attended by representatives from the United Nations and the World Bank.

The decision by the Taliban has sparked anger inside and out of the country and the IEA is asked to reverse the decision.
