US envoy Khalilzad hopes for Afghan peace deal with Taliban before July elections
Speaking at the U.S. Institute of Peace in Washington, the US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation said that although his talks with the Taliban have produced a tentative framework agreement, but negotiations are far from finished.
"It will be better for Afghanistan if we could get a peace agreement before the election, which is scheduled in July," Zalmay Khalilzad said, adding that there remained "a lot of work" to do.
He called for direct talks to begin between the Taliban and the Afghan government as soon as possible.
