CE Abdullah: Qatar Conference Interrupted Due to Mismanagement

Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah expressed that the Qatar conference was interrupted due to “mismanagement”, leading to a lost opportunity for talks.
He said this while addressing the Council of Ministers meeting on Monday.

The anticipated intra-Afghan meeting was cancelled last week due to disagreement of Qatari government with respect to constituents of the Afghan delegation. This was informed by the Presidential Palace in a statement issued late on April 16.

However Taliban issued a statement saying that such a cancellation of the Qatar meeting was an act by the NUG government to cancel the conference altogether.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo furthermore urged for seeking another Intra-Afghan dialogue.

US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad also reacted to the cancelled talks, and said in a tweet that he is “disappointed” that Qatar’s intra-Afghan initiative “has been delayed”.
