Afghan Taliban briefed Pakistan about Qatar negotiations: News agency
The men who visited Pakistan included Maulvi Shahabuddin Dilawar, a former ambassador to Pakistan, Mullah Jan Muhammad Madani, a former foreign minister and Mullah Abdul Salam, a former deputy education minister.
According to the news report, Afghan ambassador to Pakistan, Hazrat Omar Zakhilwal was aware of the meetings but did not offer any details. The meeting was reportedly confirmed by Pakistani officials who accentuated the need for long-term peace in the region.
Afghan officials confirmed two meetings had been held since September in Doha, however, a Taliban spokesman in a statement refuted reports of talks.
The first ever face-to-face meeting between Taliban and Kabul was arranged by Pakistan in 2015. The process was not successful after the Afghan government announced the death of Taliban founder and leader Mullah Omar years earlier.
The new Taliban Chief Mullah Akhtar Mansoor showed a sketchy interest in resumption of talks and he too was fatally attacked by a drone strike.
