Taliban Confirms Meeting with Iran Delegation on Afghan Peace Process
A statement by Taliban confirmed that the group’s delegation was sent to Tehran to discuss peace and security among other issues related to Afghanistan and the region.
“The delegation visited Tehran to share Taliban’s views on ‘post-occupation’ scenario and establishment of peace and security in Afghanistan and the region with Iranian officials,” Zabihullah Mujahid, a spokesman for Taliban, said in a statement.
The statement added that the Taliban delegation often travels to neighboring countries and the region to have discussions on stability in Afghanistan.
