US asks Iran to join Afghan peace talks

US asks Iran to join Afghan peace talks

Sep 29, 2020 - 10:11

PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): The Trump administration has urged Iran to join the Afghan peace negotiations, says US Special Envoy Zalmay Khalilzad.

The Pakistani leadership had been sending the right vibes for the success of the direct Kabulinfo-icon-Talibaninfo-icon talks on ending the conflict in Afghanistaninfo-icon, the ambassador told a Webinar in Washington.

Khalilzad was quoted as saying by Dawn: “We have offered to meet with Iranians on this issue. “They should join us at various forums to discuss the future of Afghanistan.”

However, the US special representative alleged that Iran created problems for American efforts to stabilise the war-devastated country.

The US would respond if Iran-backed groups in Afghanistan acted against America and its coalition partners, Khalilzad warned.

“We are monitoring them very closely. There have been occasionally disturbing actions that have had a negative impact,” the envoy claimed.
