Abdullah added that an opportunity for peace was lost as the Qatar meeting was delayed.
The meeting was cancelled over the disagreement of Qatari government with the Afghan delegation’s formation, the Presidential Palace acknowledged in a statement issued late on April 16.
In reaction to the cancellation of the Qatar meeting, Taliban in a statement said it was an attempt by the Kabul government to cancel the conference.
The Presidential Palace said in a statement on April 16 that the government and the people of Afghanistan are committed to achieving a dignified peace and will continue their sincere efforts in this respect.
Meanwhile, the US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad said in a tweet that he is “disappointed” that Qatar’s intra-Afghan initiative “has been delayed”.
