Taliban affiliated media quoted that Abdul Salam Rahimi the Afghan President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani office chief of staff, secretly meet with Mullah Baradar, deputy head for the Taliban and the political office of the group in Qatar. Reports indicate that the two sides have been talked about one and a half hours on the current situation and that the meeting was held yesterday in Doha. So far, reports have not been released on details of the visit, but Taliban sources have said that the two sides have discussed the peace talks and ending the war between government and Taliban.
The report comes out while the Afghan government is preparing to hold a Peace Consultative Loya Jirga, while a day ago, the Taliban announced that they would not attend the summit because the National Unity Government is using fake advisory of Jirga and the government is trying to extend its working period.
