Zalmay Khalilzad, the top United States negotiator on Afghanistan, said officials will "try and close on remaining issues" during peace talks in Qatar.

Baradar is one of the Taliban's founders and reportedly has the strongest influence on the insurgent group's rank-and-file members.

The U.S. and the Taliban have held eight previous rounds of negotiations in the past year on issues including a U.S. troop withdrawal, a cease-fire, intra-Afghan negotiations to follow and Taliban guarantees that Afghanistan will not be a launch pad for global terror attacks.

Earlier this week he said U.S. forces have been stuck there acting like a "police force".

A breakthrough could pave the way for a withdrawal of worldwide troops from Afghanistan, including some 14,000 USA soldiers.

US officials and Taliban spokesmen were quoted as saying that the ninth round of talks started on August 22 in the Qatari capital of Doha. Finalizing those details - how many US troops in what role must leave by when - has been at the heart of USA talks with the Taliban.

"Khalilzad will inform the top Afghan leaders about the peace deal and then finalise a declaration to end the war in Afghanistan", the USA official said on condition of anonymity.

The NATO-led Resolute Support Mission confirmed late on Wednesday that two USA soldiers live their lives in Afghanistan earlier today.

The Taliban now control more territory than at any point since the United States bombed them out of power in 2001 for sheltering Al-Qaeda, the group blamed for the September 11 attacks on the United States.

It has demanded a complete withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan and has rejected holding direct talks with the Afghan government. 'It is a unsafe place and we have to keep an eye on it'.

The United States formally ended its Afghan combat mission in 2014 but about 14,000 USA troops remain in the country, mainly training and advising government forces battling the Taliban, an affiliate of the Islamic State group, and other militants.
