KABUL, Afghanistan – Afghanistan, Pakistan, China and the United States will hold talks in Pakistan's capital on reviving negotiations to end the Afghanistan war.
Afghan Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmad Shekib Mostaghni says representatives meeting Monday will discuss a "road map for peace talks." He said Saturday that Kabul's delegation will be led by Deputy Foreign Minister Hekmat Karzai.
The talks were agreed upon during a visit to Kabul last month by Pakistan's army chief Gen. Raheel Sharif.
The talks do not include the Taliban, who have been battling the U.S.-backed government for nearly 15 years and have recently stepped up attacks.
Pakistan hosted a meeting of Kabul officials and Taliban representatives last summer, but the process collapsed after the announcement of the death of longtime Taliban leader Mullah Mohammad Omar.
