This article on President Ghani’s peace proposal to the Taleban quotes from AAN research by Thomas Ruttig and Jelena Bjelica:

The proposal has a reference to “negotiation of… any contested aspect of the international community’s future role in Afghanistan”. This, in the opinion of security analysts Thomas Ruttig and Jelena Bjelica, is “a clear hint that the presence or withdrawal of the foreign troops could be dealt with in any future peace talks”.
