سفر طالبان به ترکمنستان

The Taliban’s political deputy went to Turkmenistan

Mullah Abdul Ghani, the brother of the Taliban’s political deputy, headed a delegation to Turkmenistan.

Mohammad Naeem Wardak, the spokesman for the Taliban’s political bureau in Qatar, said the delegation had traveled to Turkmenistan yesterday, Friday, 5 February at the invitation of Turkmen government officials.

Mr. Wardak added that his brother Mullah Abdul Ghani would discuss the peace process with Turkmen officials during his visit to Turkmenistan.

It is worth mentioning that a Taliban political delegation has recently visited several neighboring countries, including Iran and Russia.

Meanwhile, the Afghan government’s negotiating team says that the Taliban delegation has left the negotiating table and is traveling to countries in the region instead of talking about the agenda of peace talks.

The United States has also criticized the Taliban’s regional trips to Iran and Moscow.

The second round of peace talks in Qatar began about a month ago, but talks between government delegations and the Taliban have stalled for two weeks now.
