He did not explain further nor did the chief American negotiator, Zalmay Khalilzad, about the outcome of the negotiations with the insurgent group. œWe have concluded this round of talks that started August 3¦.Over the last few days, the two sides focused on technical details. They were productive. I am on my way back to DC to consult on next steps, Khalilzad tweeted Monday.

Taliban political spokesman, Suhail Shaheen had said before the start of the talks that a deal was expected to follow the eighth round of their year-long dialogue with Americans.
