Zalmay Khalilzad, U.S. Special Representative for Afghanistan, held talks with External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday. The crucial interaction came days after the diplomat held talks with a Taliban delegation in the Qatari capital Doha.
“Both discussed the role of all regional stakeholders in bringing peace and development in Afghanistan. India will work with key partners in days ahead,” spokesperson of MEA Raveesh Kumar said in a social media message.
Mr. Khalilzad also met Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale. The discussion came in the backdrop of the telephonic conversation between Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and Afghanistan’s President Ashraf Ghani when both sides discussed ways of peace building to help the market and connectivity scenario in the Af-Pak region.
The visit of Mr. Khalilzad is significant as it aims at establishing a broader regional discussion.
