WASHINGTON DC: US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation, Zalmay Khalilzad, is set to lead a large delegation on a six-nation tour, including Pakistan and Afghanistan, to boost the peace process and bring “all Afghan parties together in an intra-Afghan dialogue”.

In a statement issued on Sunday, the State Department said Khalilzad, who has undertaken extensive recent talks with the Taliban, would head an inter-agency delegation from February 10 to 28.

It was unclear whether the group had already left at the time of the statement.
