According to Taliban sources, the two sides arrived with tough conditions

"It was an introductory meeting in which an eight-member U.S. delegation held a detailed meeting with members of our political office," said a senior Taliban member. Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanakzai, who is the head of Taliban's Qatar office, led the discussions, he said. 

Another senior member of the Taliban said Khalilzad had asked the Taliban leadership, based in the Qatari capital Doha, to declare a ceasefire in Afghanistan for six months, starting before the Oct.20 parliamentary polls. 

"Both sides discussed prospects for peace, and the U.S presence in Afghanistan," said another Taliban official, requesting anonymity. 

In exchange, the Taliban want the Afghan government to release fighters from jails across the country and the swift removal of foreign forces fighting alongside Afghan troops. 

A Taliban source said the U.S. delegation proposed forming different committees to handle the release of prisoners. 

"Neither side agreed to accept the other's demands immediately, but they agreed to meet again and find a solution to the conflict," he said.
