The delegation, headed by Taliban’s deputy leader Mullah Baradar Akhund, visited China on Monday to talk about future relations in the instance that the movement achieves a peace deal with the United States.
“I can only make sure that the group is in Iran, no information has been given until now,” the source informed us, adding that the delegation is trying to ensure the neighboring nations that the post-settlement Afghanistan will not be a threat to the regional nations.
The visits come as the Taliban and the United States are anticipated to hold the seventh round of peace talks in Qatar within days.
The Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahed, has confirmed to media that the talks is going to take place in an attempt to push for a breakthrough.
“The agenda of the talks is same. The Islamic Emirate is not enthusiastic about repeated talks, we hope there would be a breakthrough,” Mujahed told media.
The Taliban has very long denied keeping direct peace discussions with the West-backed Afghan government, calling it a puppet of Western countries.
