The United States seeks regional support for the Afghan peace process

Washington: US President-elect Joe Biden plans to review a peace deal with the Taliban so that meaningful talks can take place with the Afghan government and other parties, including a reduction in violence in Afghanistan.

Emily Horn, a spokeswoman for the US National Security Council, said Jack Sullivan, the new US National Security Adviser, had made it clear to his Afghan counterpart, Hamdullah Mohib, that the US administration intended to review the peace deal.

According to spokeswoman Emily Horn, the United States will review whether the Taliban are reducing violence in line with their obligations under the peace agreement, so that meaningful dialogue can take place with the Afghan government and other parties, including reducing violence in Afghanistan.

Spokeswoman Emily Horn said Adviser Jack Sullivan made it clear that the United States would support the peace process with diplomatic efforts at the regional level so that the parties could find a lasting and just political solution to the problem.

It should be noted that the historic peace agreement between the United States and the Taliban was signed on February 29, 2020 to end the 19-year war in Afghanistan. According to this agreement, not only the United States will withdraw its troops by May 2021, but also the United States. And the Taliban will exchange thousands of prisoners before talks between the Afghan sides, but the deal has been delayed due to a number of issues.
