Las Vegas Review-Journal - - WASHINGTON -

The Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion’s spe­cial en­voy for Afghanistan is re­turn­ing to the coun­try af­ter stops in Europe and the Mid­dle East in an ex­tended diplo­matic tour aimed at push­ing a U.S. peace ini­tia­tive.

The State Depart­ment said in a state­ment Sun­day that Zal­may Khalilzad would spend the rest of Fe­bru­ary trav­el­ing to Bel­gium, Ger­many, Turkey,

Qatar, Afghanistan and Pak­istan.

Khalilzad re­cently fin­ished a sim­i­lar trip, dur­ing which his talks with the Tal­iban pro­duced a ten­ta­tive frame­work agree­ment, but he warned last week that the ne­go­ti­a­tions are far from fin­ished.
