Taliban cancels peace talks with U.S. officials

People gathered Taliban as they celebrate ceasefire in Bati Kot district of Nangarhar province, Afghanistan.

The Taliban said on Tuesday they had canceled planned peace talks with U.S. officials in Qatar this week over an agenda disagreement.

“Both sides have agreed to not meet in Qatar,” senior Taliban members based in Afghanistan said.

Talks had been planned for two days starting Wednesday in Qatar, senior Taliban members earlier said. The Taliban had rejected requests from regional powers to allow Afghan officials to take part in the discussion.
