KABUL - The Afghan government on Wednesday announced that it suspended talks with the United States on the proposed security agreement, saying the United States had contradictory stance over the peace process in Afghanistan, local media reported.

"The ongoing fourth round of talks between Afghanistan and the United States on the security agreement is suspended," local TV channel TOLO reported, citing a statement issued by the Afghan Natinal Security Council.

The announcement came one day after Taliban opened a political office in Doha, the capital of Gulf state of Qatar.

According to the report, US representatives are to launch talks with the Taliban there on Thursday.
