United States and the Taliban started new talks in Doha on Sunday, when Washington tried to find success ahead of Afghanistan’s presidential election in September, the spokesman said,

The official spokesperson for Taliban, Zabihullah Mujaheed via Twitter, said the seventh round of negotiations between US representatives and the Islamic Emirate negotiations team had begun in Doha.

The talks are the seventh to date, aimed at ending the longest American war.

It took place in the capital of Qatar to coincide with the news of the death of 25 pro-government soldiers in the Taliban attack in northern Afghanistan.

The attack took place in the Nahrin district in the Baghlan region before dawn, when the civilian group tried to rescue a group of soldiers besieged by Taliban members.

Potential agreements arising from the talks will see US consent to bring its troops out there after more than 17 years in there in return for the Taliban’s assurance that Afghanistan is no longer a stronghold of extremist tribes.

The US-Taliban talks revolve around four major issues, namely the eradication of terrorists, the presence of foreign forces, the internal dialogue of Afghanistan and the permanent cease-fire.

US government sources have earlier said they are hoping to reach a consensus ahead of the postponed Afghanistan elections twice before being set in September.

On Tuesday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made a quiet visit to Kabul and expressed hope to sign a peace deal with the Taliban before September 1.
