Afghanistan’s acting foreign minister Amirkhan Motaqi leading a high-level delegation left Kabul for the Qatari capital Doha on Friday, October 8.

Deputy Minister of information and culture and spokesperson of the Taliban Zabiullah Mujahid said that Amir Khan Motaqi and his delegation will meet the Qatari officials and representatives of other countries in Doha.

The Afghan delegation is due to discuss the political situation of Afghanistan.

It comes after Amir Khan Motaqi hosted his Uzbek counterpart in Kabul and discussed bilateral relations, trade, and other economic projects including the import of electricity.

Earlier, members of the Taliban’s political office in Doha and their UN nominee Suhail Shaheen had discussed Afghanistan’s situation with the representatives of EU members states, the US, and Japan.

Shaheen had said that isolating Afghanistan is a failed policy that serves no one and reiterated that the Taliban want to engage with the international community.
