Afghan Taliban cancel peace talks with US citing ‘agenda disagreement’


The Afghan Taliban said on January 8 that they had called off peace talks with US officials in Qatar this week due to an “agenda disagreement”, especially over the involvement of Afghan officials as well as a possible ceasefire and prisoner exchange.

Two days of peace talks had been set to start on January 9, Taliban officials told Reuters earlier, but the hardline Islamic militant group had refused to allow “puppet” Afghan officials to join.
