Second round of peace talks expected soon: US envoy
Although he would not give an exact date for the talks, the envoy assured the US -- following demands from Pakistan and Afghanistan -- would attend the negotiations as observer.
The special representative who visited Pakistan earlier before arriving in Kabul on Thursday, said he had held detailed and constructive discussions on different issues with Afghan officials.
Feldman added he had a meeting with officials from Afghan election commission, who shared their plans regarding reforms in the poll panels.
In his meeting with Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah, Feldman promised America's complete support for the national unity government.
“We have come to know through media regarding Mullah Omar’s death,” he said, avoiding replying questions regarding the whereabouts and time of the world's most wanted man.
The US had initiated investigations and would share the findings soon after they were completed, he said. Feldman also mentioned strong US support to President Ashraf Ghani's efforts for peace and better relations with Pakistan.
The situation was favorable for the peace process and talks offered a moment of opportunity for the Taliban to become part of the Afghan political system, he noted.
