US special envoy Zalmay Khalilzad sent a letter to negotiators representing the Afghan republic and the Taliban specifying the date for the Turkey conference on Afghanistan, sources in Qatar said.
The sources said that a political consensus for an early solution to the Afghanistan crisis, the establishment of a shared government and a regional and international consensus will be the main parts of the agenda at the Turkey summit.
A 15-member committee in the High Council of National Reconciliation (HCNR) under the chairmanship of former Afghan Vice President Mohammad Younus Qanooni, and including Foreign Minister Hanif Atmar, National Security Adviser Hamdullah Mohib, the State Minister on Peace Affairs and other political leaders, is attempting this week to gather and finalize various submitted perspectives and plans for the Afghan peace process ahead of the UN-led conference on Afghanistan in Turkey, officials from HCNR said.
The peace council said that until now no exact date about the date of the potential conference in Turkey has been shared; however, TOLOnews learned on Tuesday that US peace envoy Zalmay Khalilzad had reportedly shared a specific date for the conference with the negotiation teams in Doha.
