At the same time, the sources of the Afghan TV channel ToloNews called Norway as a future destination for peace talks. Nevertheless, the platform in Uzbekistan, apparently, is a priority for the Western coalition, taking into account the revitalization of the activities of EU functionaries in the Central Asian direction.

Earlier, the Foreign Minister of Uzbekistan Abdulaziz Kamilov met the head of the Taliban delegation including Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar in Doha and discussed the process of peaceful Afghan settlement, as well as economic assistance to Afghanistan.

The July 8 inter-Afghan meeting in Doha was attended by 17 representatives of the Taliban as well as over 50 Afghan political and public figures. The composition of the Kabul delegation was formed on the draft of Berlin, which was directly involved in organizing the meeting.
