The peace talks have found urgency as the U.S. and NATO troops prepare to withdraw from Afghanistan by the end of 2014. The Qatar News Agency (QNA) said Karzai met with the emir, Sheik Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, and other senior government officials on Sunday. It also said he held talks with Qatar's ambassador to Pakistan.
