Khalilzad to Visit India

US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad is set make his second visit to India for consultations starting on Monday.

While seeking support and ideas from India for the ongoing reconciliation, Khalilzad is also expected to brief Indian authorities about the progress made in the peace efforts in the past few months.

The US peace envoy for Afghanistan is likely to meet external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and foreign secretary Vijay Gokhale.

The last time Khalilzad was here was in January when India conveyed to him that there was a need to protect the existing structure in Afghanistan and to also not insist on the formation of an interim government.
