Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Qatari Emir Hamad Bin Khalifa al-Thani discussed Sunday prospects for peace in Afghanistan, the official Qatar News Agency reported.
The talks in the capital Doha were also attended by senior officials from both sides, DPA reported.
An Afghan Foreign Ministry official said last week that Karzai would use his visit to Qatar to discuss the opening of a political office for the Taliban, who have been waging a war since their regime was toppled in 2001.
The Afghan government has been pushing for the Taliban to open an office in Qatar "to facilitate a direct relationship and direct talks." But the insurgents have repeatedly refused talks with the Karzai administration, calling it a puppet administration of the United States.
While Qatar has welcomed the possibility of opening the office in a bid to facilitate peace efforts, no details about the outcome of such talks were provided.
