Khalilzad To Appear Before US Senate
US Special Envoy Zalmay Khalilzad is appearing before the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday for a closed hearing on the Afghan reconciliation process, said US Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
It is expected that Khalilzad will brief the committee on his talks with Abdul Ghani Baradar Taliban’s political deputy and his team as well as negotiations with the Taliban in Qatar.
In the past nearly seven months, Khalilzad has met with Taliban representatives six times in Doha and UAE.
In the sixth round of the talks in Doha last month, the two sides made “steady but slow progress” on key issues under debate.
