Afghan President Ashraf Ghani met with visiting US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad on Sunday evening.

During the meeting in the presidential palace, Khalilzad briefed Ghani about his recent trips to Pakistan, Europe as part of peace efforts and detailed his future plans, a statement from the palace said.

The talks focused on launch of intra-Afghan dialogue, hoping it begins as soon as possible. The sides also appreciated Germany’s role regarding the same issue.

The Taliban have held talks with Afghan politicians in Moscow, but refused to meet government representatives.

Khalilzad has held six rounds of talks with the Taliban with the sides citing progress on preventing Afghanistan from being used by terrorist groups and foreign troop withdrawal.

The envoy is expected to meet the insurgent group in Doha for next round of talks which is expected this week.
