KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The US deputy special representative for Afghanistaninfo-icon and Pakistaninfo-icon on Thursday said she believed the Afghan peace talks would produce a positive outcome.

She expressed these views during a meeting with Afghanistan National Security Advisor Hanif Atmar in Kabul, a statement from the National Security Council’s office said.

The deputy special envoy also reassured Afghanistan of her country’s continued support in different fields.

Atmar said Afghanistan was optimistic about the outcome of the peace process and the presence of the US and China in the process had strengthened Afghan people and government’s optimism in this regard.

However, Atmar said the Afghan government would not talk with elements who continued to unleash violence against the people of Afghanistan.

The Quadrilateral Coordination Group (QCG) in its fourt meeting in Kabul had agreed on a roadmap and a date for direct talks between the Afghan government and the Talibaninfo-icon.

The four-nation group had invited the Taliban to attend the talks with the Afghan representatives in Pakistan in early March.

However, the Taliban have so far said nothing about their participation in the talks.
