An agreement - if reached - is expected to include Taliban guarantees that Afghanistan would not be a base for other extremist groups in the future.

"Peace is the desire of each Afghan and peace will come, there shouldn't be any doubt about it", he said.

The American and allied troops that remain are conducting strikes on the Taliban and the local Islamic State affiliate, and working to train and build the Afghan military. The Taliban stage near-daily attacks across Afghanistan, mainly targeting Afghan forces and government officials but also killing many civilians.
