Amid US Troops’ Drawdown Talks, US State Secretary Mike Pompeo To Meet Taliban Negotiators In Qatar
Amid American troops’ drawdown talks, US secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be meeting negotiators from the Taliban and Afghan government separately in the Gulf state of Qatar. He will also be engaging with ruler, Emir Shiekh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani in Doha.
On his seven-nation tour to Europe and the Middle East, the outgoing US State Secretary is seemingly speeding up the forces’ withdrawal process announced by US President Donald Trump in February this year following the deal signed between Washington and the Taliban.
The maiden talks between the Taliban and Afghan government kicked off in September in Doha, but faltered over disagreements on common language and religious interpretations. The two have, however, managed to reach consensus on some grounds.
