Afghan Taliban representatives and United State officials will hold peace talks for two days starting Wednesday in the Gulf state of Qatar.
Senior Taliban members, however, said Afghan government officials will not be involved in the talks.
The Taliban have rejected numerous requests from regional powers to allow Afghan officials to take part in the talks, insisting that the US is their main adversary in the 17-year war and that Kabul is a "puppet" regime.
