The peace negotiations interrupted again following an attack undertaken by Taliban militants on Wednesday.

U.S peace envoy Zalmay Khalilzad has informed that the Doha peace negotiations have been ‘paused’ following the attack on Bagram airfield.

When I met the Talibs today, I expressed outrage about yesterday’s attack on Bagram, which recklessly killed two and wounded dozens of civilians. Taliban must show they are willing & able to respond to Afghan desire for peace, Zalmay Khalizad tweeted.

We’re taking a brief pause for them to consult their leadership on this essential topic, said Khalilzad.

The major topics of the 5 days talks between the U.S peace delegations and the Taliban leaders in Doha, Qatar were ‘violence reduction’ and ‘ceasefire’, but the Wednesday’s attack by Taliban which killed 2 and injured over 70 most of whom were civilians, changed the scene.
