The fifth round of talks between the U.S. and Taliban representatives will kick off today in Qatar.
Zabiullah Mujahid in a Twitter post has confirmed that the fifth round of talks will focus on U.S. troops withdrawal of prevention of Afghanistan from harming others.
This comes as efforts are underway to find a negotiated settlement to the ongoing conflict in Afghanistan.
