No Date Set For the Jeddah Peace Talks: High Peace Council

A spokesman for Afghanistan’s High Peace Council says Saudi Arabia has not yet set a date for Jeddah peace talks and direct discussions between the United States and the Taliban.

Seyed Ehsan Taheri, a spokesman for HPC, in a press conference at the government’s media and information center in Kabul, said that as the host, Saudi Arabia has not yet identified a date for holding the peace talks.

The High Peace Council hopes that the Jeddah talks, as the Abu Dhabi talks, will not be held without the presence of the Afghan government delegation, Taheri emphasized.

Meanwhile, Omar Daudzai, head of the High Peace Council secretariat, said last week that Afghanistan, unlike the Abu Dhabi talks, would not attend the Jeddah talks, without guaranteeing direct talks with the Taliban.
