A Taliban member familiar with, but not part of, the talks that resumed in Qatar says US envoy Zalmay Khalilzad met one-on-one with the Taliban's lead negotiator, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar.
Taliban is "really committed to peace, but think the obstacle for peace should be removed first," Taliban co-founder and political leader Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar says in a rare televised appearance at the start of the two-day meeting in Moscow.
The longest peace talks between the US and the Taliban to end America's 17-year war in Afghanistan concluded on Tuesday night in Qatar, with both sides saying progress had been made, but no final agreement could be reached.
The talks are being seen as the most promising yet between the warring parties after Taliban co-founder Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar joined for the first time, flying in from Pakistan.
