Up to Afghanistan to choose its political system - Pompeo

Afghanistan will have to determine its own future political system, United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (pictured) stated on Saturday in Doha, Qatar.

"The choice of your future political system is, of course, yours to make," the official said, adding that he hoped the new system will protect the rights of all Afghan and lead to social progress, such as increasing the presence of women in public life.

The peace talks, whose aim is to end the 19-year old war between the Afghanistan government and the Taliban, started in Qatar's capital today.
