Afghani President Ghani arrives in Doha amid delay in peace talks

Kabul, (UNA-OIC) – Afghani President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani arrived in Qatar’s capital, Doha, for a bilateral meeting with the country’s top leaders but reportedly will not hold a meeting with Taliban officials even as peace talks are underway in Doha.

Negotiations between the Afghan government and Taliban that started last month are aimed at the warring sides agreeing to a reduction of violence and a possible future peace agreement in Afghanistan.

However, violence has not abated even as Afghan negotiators have been engaged in direct talks for the first time.

Clashes and suicide attacks have left dozens of civilians dead in recent weeks.
