"I spent the last days in Doha focusing on the remaining issues in terms of completing a possible deal with the Taliban that will allow a conditional withdrawal of troops," Khalilzad wrote in his official Twitter account on Monday. "We have made remarkable progress."
The envoy said he would travel to Delhi on Monday for meetings to achieve international consensus in support of the peace process in Afghanistan.
Zalmay Khalilzad said his team would continue to discuss technical details with Taliban representatives, as well as steps and mechanisms for a successful implementation of the agreement being worked on.
The United States has held several rounds of talks with the "Taliban", during which the discussion discussed the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan with the commitment of the movement to sever relations with terrorist organizations and join the efforts to combat terrorism.
