BEIJING – The US chief negotiator Zalmay Khalilzad traveled to China after the last meeting with Taliban on Tuesday and is to go back to Washington to report his negotiations with Taliban to the US government.
Political analysts called the seventh round of the talks fruitful and that the two parties gained agreements to be signed soon.
Ahmad Saeedi, a political expert, has said in an article that US and Taliban agreed on a troop withdrawal deal within two years.
According to Saeedi, the two sides have also agreed on the continuation of the unity government for the next two years and Taliban fighters would integrate the government.
He also said that presidential elections would be postponed for two years and some regional states including China would guarantee the peace deal.
The presidential election is slated for September 28 and President Ashraf Ghani has repeatedly emphasized on the timely elections, saying that elections and peace efforts could not be alternative to each other, but they could be supporters of each other.
Rahmatollah Bijanpour, another political expert said that Khalilzad went to China to have Beijing’s support of his deal with Taliban.
He added that inclusion of regional nations especially China and Russia as guarantors of the peace deal would be part of the US-Taliban agreement.
