Exclusive Interview With US Chief Negotiator Zalmay Khalilzad
In this program, host Lotfullah Najafizada interviews US Special Envoy Zalmay Khalilzad about the nine rounds of US-Taliban talks, the US agreement with the Taliban and the future peace efforts in Afghanistan.
Mr. Khalilzad says the United States and the Taliban have reached an agreement in principle, but it is not final until US President Trump agrees on it.
The two sides have held nine rounds of talks in the past ten months.
He says that based on the draft agreement, the US will withdraw 5,000 troops from five bases in Afghanistan within 135 days if conditions in the agreement are addressed by the Taliban.
