KABUL: President Ghani’s Second Vice President, Sarwar

Danish said Tuesday that the direct talks between the Afghan government and

Taliban group would be kicked off after September Presidential polls.

In a meeting with the members of the parliament, Danish said

the constitutional and governmental issues have not been discussed with the

Taliban so far.

“US Special Envoy for Afghanistan Reconciliation, Zalmay

Khalilzad held talks with the Taliban over issues related to both sides. The

Afghan government is another side of negotiations,” he said.

Danish emphasized on a peace deal, which can end the

violence, and pave the ground for a lasting stability in Afghanistan.

“Afghans want peace, which can ensure stability, security

and preserve the achievements and freedom, has gained in the past two decades,”

he added.

His remarks come as the eight round of peace talks between

US and Taliban representatives was wrapped up recently in Qatar’s capital Doha.

Khalilzad in his twitter page said the two sides have

discussed over productive technical details of the peace process.

Meanwhile, according to some sources the peace agreement

between US and Taliban is expected to be signed within few days. The agreement

will facilitate the ground for US troop’s withdrawal and direct talks between

Taliban and Afghan government. The direct talks are likely to be held in one of

the European states.
