The contact groups from both sides of the Afghan peace negotiations in Doha met twice on Wednesday but did not reach an agreement about the procedural rules intended to guide the formal talks.

Mohammad Naeem, a spokesman for the Taliban’s political office in Doha, said that the meetings will continue in order to reach an agreement so the talks can proceed, however, sources on the republic's team have said that the Taliban is not willing to show any flexibility in its position.

Both the Kabul and Taliban teams formed small groups called “contact groups” on the opening day of the talks on September 12. The contact groups have held five meetings so far to discuss rules and regulations as well as the agenda of the negotiations.
