KABUL: The United States envoy for Afghan peace, has shared his plan over a transitional government to Taliban while on his visit to Qatar where the militant group maintains a political office since 2013.
Mohammad Naeem, Taliban’s political spokesman, said Monday that Khalilzad shared the plan with the insurgents’ leadership during a meeting.
He said that they would assess the plan and no decision was yet made.
Naeem said that Khalilzad’s plan include transitional government, holding a meeting in Ankara and cease fire, but added the militant group was yet to declare its stance.
Khalilzad restarted visits to the region after President Joe Biden agreed to keep him as the US envoy for peace in Afghanistan in February.
He was in Kabul last week, where he shared the same plan with President Ashraf Ghani and some political leaders.
Ghani strongly opposes the transitional government, saying he would hand the power to his legal successor through elections.
But most of Afghans including political leaders seem to welcome the interim administration with the hope of an opportunity to end of long war.
