No permanent ceasefire from Taliban until settlement: Khalilzad

 KhalilzadKabul, Sep 27 : Zalmay Khalilzad, the US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation, has said that the Taliban will not agree to a comprehensive ceasefire until there is a political settlement in place.

And that is not unprecedented in similar conflicts elsewhere, I think they can do a reduction of violence, they have said they will consider it depending on what the proposal is. The government is supportive of it too,” TOLO News reported on Saturday citing Khalilzad as saying in an interview with PBS News Magazine.
Khalilzad said that the US is ready to work with the Afghan government and the Taliban for a reduction in violence.

First of its kind ‘Virtual G20’: Can world leaders agree on a global response to Covid-19 with online diplomacy?

Heads of state will meet for a ‘Virtual G20’ summit in a few hours to work out a global response to the Covid-19 pandemic. It comes as markets crash, supply chains falter, and a worldwide economic downturn looms.
For the first time in history, there will be no government planes touching down in the host city, no police blocking roads, no hotels full to the brim with the bodyguards of world leaders —  and no anti-globalist protesters lining the streets.
