KABUL: The Last Conversation Round Between EE. UU And The Taliban Is Finished In Qatar On Thursday, An Insurgent Spokesman Said, After Positive And Constructive Negotiations That Continued Even As The Taliban Bombed A Help Group Funded By United States In Kabul .

Suhail Shaheen, the Taliban 's political spokesman in Doha, tweeted that "some progress" had been made at the sixth round of peace talks and that the foes would meet again for another round of discussions .

In General, This Round Was Positive And Constructive. Both Sides Listened To Each Other With Care And Patience, Shaheen Wrote On.

The US Embassy In Kabul Did Not Immediately Comment, Nor Did US Peace Envoy Zalmay Khalilzad , Former United States Ambassador Born In Afghanistan Afghanistan Who Is Leading Negotiations For The Americans.

Shaheen told AFP on Sunday that peace negotiations were stumbling over the fundamental question of when foreign forces would depart Afghanistan .

Before the US agrees to any withdrawal as part of an eventual deal, it is demanding the Taliban put in place security guarantees, a ceasefire and other commitments including an "intra-Afghan" dialogue with the Kabul government and other Afghan representatives .

The Taliban , however, insist they won't do any of these things until the US announces a withdrawal timeline .

At The End Of A Large Peace Summit In Kabul Last Week, President Ashraf Ghani offered the Taliban a ceasefire to begin on the first day of Ramadan , But The Insurgents Refused.

On Wednesday, a Taliban suicide bomber and four gunmen attacked Counterpart International, a non-profit group working with marginalised people in Afghanistan , killing nine people .

" This Violent Attack Is A Senseless Assault On Noble Values ​​That Support Organizations As Counterpart, As Service To Others, Education And Inclusion," United States Secretary Of State Of America Mike Pompeo Said In A Statement
