EXCLUSIVE-Taliban, Afghan negotiators agree ground rules to continue peace talks - sources

Oct 6 (Reuters) - Taliban officials and Afghan representatives have agreed on a code of conduct that sets ground rules to advance their peace talks in Doha, three official sources said on Tuesday.

The delegations, helped by U.S. officials, agreed on Monday on 19 rules which make up a code of conduct that will be followed to stop the peace talks collapsing, the sources told Reuters.

Negotiations between the Afghan government and the insurgent Taliban started last month in Qatar’s capital and are aimed at ending decades of war in Afghanistan. (Reporting by Rupam Jain in Mumbai, Abdul Qadir Sediqi in Kabul, Editing by Charlotte Greenfield and Andrew Heavens)
