KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The national unity government on Monday hoped the fourth quadrilateral meeting scheduled for tomorrow in capital Kabul would pave the ground for direct talks with the Talibaninfo-icon and Hezb-i-Islamiinfo-icon Afghanistaninfo-icon (HIA) insurgent groups.

Three of the quadrilateral meetings involving Afghanistan, Pakistaninfo-icon, China and the US had previously been held in Kabul and Islamabad.

Representatives from the four nations in the third meeting on February 6 agreed on a roadmap towards resuming the stalled peace talks with militants.

Javed Faisal, the deputy spokesman for Chief Executive Officer (CEO), told Pajhwok Afghan News the fourth quadrilateral meeting would take place in Kabul on Tuesday.

“We hope the meeting will yield positive results and pave the ground for a clear mechanism on peace negotiations. We also wish that the time and venue for direct talks with militants will also be decided in the meeting,” he said.

Direct talks with Taliban militants would begin after the quadrilateral meeting, Faisal said, adding the Afghan government intended to talk with all armed opposition groups, including Taliban, HIA and the Haqqani Networkinfo-icon.
