The diplomat tweeted, “They reiterated the need for a humanitarian ceasefire to help manage the COVID-19 outbreak, urged the Talibaninfo-icon to reduce violence, called on the Afghan govt to end the political crisis, and said all sides should move more quickly on prisoner releases.”

He wrote: “How urgently and with what conviction the sides respond to these steps will determine whether Afghanistan moves forward or remains mired in war, poverty and disease.”
