Afghan officials said they are working on opening the office for insurgent representatives to facilitate the peace process.
"We hope to open an office for the Taliban once the US and Qatar agree on the matter, and we hope to witness direct talks with the group," said Janan Mosazai, Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson.
