To find ways to overcome disputed issues, Doha contact groups met

The Peace Negotiating Team of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan confirmed the two sides met on Monday night in Doha to find ways to move the stalled intra-Afghan negotiations forward.

In a post on Twitter, the team said: “The contact groups of IRoA & other side held a meeting today evening. Detailed discussions took place on the contested issues and both sides agreed to continue meeting as to reach a resolution.”

This comes after a break in talks in Doha between the Afghan negotiating team and the Taliban of almost two weeks. 

The sticking points between the two groups are based primarily on two issues. That of jurisprudence around negotiations going forward and that the Taliban want the US-Taliban agreement signed in February to be the framework around which the current talks are based. 

Afghanistan, which was not party to the February agreement, is not in favor of this.
