US to restart talks with Taliban

The United States will restart talks with the Taliban, the State Department announced on Wednesday.

Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad will first travel to Kabul, where he will follow up on President Donald Trump's surprise visit to the country on Thanksgiving.

Khalilzad will then meet with representatives of the Taliban in Doha, Qatar, to "discuss steps that could lead to intra-Afghan negotiations and a peaceful settlement of the war."

Trump called off talks with the Taliban in early September.
