Delay on Taliban US peace talks

Amena Bakr

Preliminary Afghan peace talks in Qatar between U.S. and Taliban officials are unlikely to take place on Thursday as originally expected, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters.

Asked if the meeting would go ahead on Thursday, the source replied: "There is nothing scheduled that I am aware of." Asked if that meant they would not happen today, the source added: "Yes that's correct."
