Turkey is planning to host a round of Afghanistan peace talks in Istanbul in April, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu was cited as saying by the state-owned Anadolu news agency on Friday.
It said that Ankara would appoint an Afghanistan special envoy.
Cavusoglu’s comments came after the U.S. shared with Afghan officials, Taliban leaders and others a draft peace plan calling for replacement of the government with a power-sharing interim administration pending elections under a new constitution.
Russia also plans to hold a conference on Afghanistan in Moscow before the ending of the month, the TASS news agency said on Tuesday. (Reuters/NAN)
