His remarks come amid the ongoing backdoor negotiations between the Washington and the Taliban in Doha, Qatar, which entered their fifth day on Thursday.
Meanwhile, the US ambassador to Kabul John Bass has said that the first intra-Afghan talks which are scheduled to take place in three days in Qatar is critical to leverage the peace process in the country. He said that peace is among the first priorities of the Afghan and US governments.
This comes as Afghan prominent leaders and politicians are preparing to attend the scheduled intra-Afghan dialogue in Qatar in the next three days.
“This conflict will only end when Afghans, all Afghans, sit together and work through the differences that have fueled the conflict, that driven the conflict for so many years. From our perspective that means an intra-Afghan dialogue that includes everyone with society and also formal intra-Afghan negotiations,” the US Ambassador to Kabul John Bass said.
