The latest round of talks between the US and the Taliban in Doha, Qatar, aimed at reaching an agreement to withdraw American troops from Afghanistan and also a potential peace deal to end the 18-year conflict, have ended, media reports said on Tuesday.

The eighth round of talks in Doha concluded after midnight on Monday, reports TOLO News.

In a tweet on Monday, US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad said that the talks which began on August 3 have been productive. Khalilzad said he was returning to Washington for consultations on next steps in the peace process, adding that the US was “working hard toward a lasting and honourable peace agreement and a sovereign Afghanistan which poses no threat to any other country”.

Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen said in a tweet that negotiators from the two sides would now consult with their leadership about the details of the topics which came under discussion in the talks.

On August 9, a former Taliban member told TOLO News that the two sides were likely sign a peace deal after Eid-al-Adha, at the end of this week.
