Talks between Afghan delegation, Taliban in Doha ‘cancelled’

The much-anticipated talks between Afghan politicians, civil society members and other representatives of Afghanistan’s society with the Taliban scheduled for April 20-21 were “canceled” due to a “disagreement” by Qatari government on the 250-member list proposed by the Afghan side, reported the TOLOnews.

The Presidential Palace said in a statement that the Doha meeting was “canceled” as the Qatar government did not accept the Afghan delegation’s list and instead suggested a new list “which was not acceptable to the Afghan government”.

“After completion of preparations of the delegation for going to (Qatar), Qatar government sent a new list which was not balanced in terms of involvement of the people of Afghanistan and in other words it was a disrespect to the national will of the Afghan people and this is not acceptable to the people of Afghanistan,” the statement said.
