Afghan Taliban negotiators say Kabul attacks will not disrupt Qatar peace process
Islamabad: Afghan Taliban negotiators have said the attacks that occurred near the Afghan Presidential palace in Kabul will not affect the Qatar peace process.
The attack occurred close to the Presidential Palace, the Ministry of Defence, a major ISAF base, the American embassy and dozens of other government and non-government organizations.
Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid said a group of eight heavily armed Taliban militants launched early attacks on a hotel where Americans and other foreigners were staying, and the Afghan Ministry of Defence and other government buildings are located, the Express Tribune reports.
The Taliban attack raised doubts about the dialogue process in Qatar, which could not start following Kabul`s refusal to join it.
However, a Taliban official in Qatar said the Kabul attacks would not affect the peace process as it is a `political track`.
The Taliban official warned that no side should lose the peace chance in Qatar as `it has started after a long time, complicated and hectic consultations,` the report added.
