President Donald Trump’s point man on Afghanistan, seeking to support stepped-up efforts to reach peace in the war-torn country, is visiting Brussels, Paris and Moscow.
A statement from the State Department said on Monday the US negotiator would consult Russia, China and European allies on putting an end to the conflict in Afghanistan.
In Moscow, the diplomat will meet his Russian and Chinese counterparts to discuss shared interests in seeing the war in Afghanistan come to an end.
Before launching his latest peace offensive, Khalilzad met Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen Mark A. Milley and other officials.
After the meeting, Khalilzad said a political settlement would help reduce the burden of war and protect the gains made in Afghanistan.
Last month, Trump abruptly called off planned meetings with senior Taliban leaders and President Ashraf Ghani at the Camp David resort.
