The negotiators of the government of Afghanistan in Qatar have offered the Taliban a power-sharing deal in return for an end to fighting in the country, a source privy to the development told news agency AFP on Thursday.

“Yes, the government has submitted a proposal to Qatar as mediator. The proposal allows the Taliban to share power in return for a halt in violence in the country,” the report quoted the source further saying.

As per reports, the militant group now controls 65% of Afghanistan and has taken or threatens to take 11 provincial capitals, a senior EU official was quoted as saying on Tuesday.
