A delegation of political leaders of Taliban led by Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, the deputy political chief of Taliban, will visit Islamabad today.
Suhail Shaheen, a spokesman for the political office of Taliban in Qatar said in a Twitter post the Taliban delegation will visit Islamabad on official invitation.
Shaheen further added that the Taliban leaders will hold talks on some important issues with the Pakistani officials. He did not disclose further information in this regard.
According to Shaheen, the Taliban delegation’s visit to Islamabad would be the 4th such trip to regional countries after the delegation’s visit to Russia, China and Iran.
This comes as the Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan had earlier said it would be a big tragedy if Afghan peace talks don’t make headway.
He made the remarks during a ceremony at Torkham crossing on 18th of September. “We will put our best (effort) that these talks are resumed again.”
The U.S. President Donald Trump called off peace talks with the Taliban group on 8th of September after a series of deadly attacks in Kabul city that killed dozens including an American soldier.
