Norway and Germany are seeking to host peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban

The talks will be held after the announcement of a timeline for withdrawal of foreign troops, according to sources.

The United States and the Taliban concluded their seventh round of talks on Tuesday.

Ghairat Baheer, a member of the delegation that participated in intra-Afghan dialogue with Taliban in Doha, said that US top negotiator Zalmay Khalilzad had told them that they were close to an agreement.

The two-day intra-Afghan dialogue was attended by government officials, civil society, women and Taliban representatives.

Laila Jafari, a participant of the meeting, said that she had told the Taliban during writing of the declaration of the conference that they wouldn’t accept return of Taliban’s lashing of women.
