Washington and the Afghan Taliban have started the negotiations aimed at resuming peace talks that collapsed last month, the Wall Street Journal reported.

US envoy Zalmay Khalilzad met with the Taliban earlier this month in Pakistan and discussed a possible prisoner swap or curbing violence, the paper said.

It was the first US meeting with the Taliban in a month, the paper said, adding that Khalilzad also met with international diplomats in New York late last month on similar issues.

The prisoner deal could allow the release of Anas Haqqani, a senior member of the Haqqani network linked to the Taliban, the newspaper said, citing its sources. The Taliban could release the two university professors, one American and one Australian, who were detained while teaching at the American University of Afghanistan.

US President Donald Trump announced in September that the peace talks with the Taliban would be suspended just one day before a planned visit by some GAM officials to the White House, which has drawn much criticism for its coinciding with the anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks.
