US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad has again called on Afghan political leaders and the Taliban to agree on a peaceful settlement of the conflict in the country and avoid repeating “past mistakes.”

Khalilzad held talks with the negotiating team of the Taliban in Doha on Thursday after he arrived there almost three weeks following the inauguration ceremony of Afghanistan’s peace negotiations.  

”The fact that the Afghans are sitting across the table for the first time in 42 years is a moment of hope and opportunity,” Khalilzad said as quoted in an interview by NPR.
