Today, the Taliban spokesman said Tuesday that the group has formed a team of 14 people for peace talks with the United States. The newsletter says Mullah Baradar Akhandzadeh, the Taliban’s deputy political leader, led by Taliban leader Mullah Hyibutollah Akhndzadeh, has appointed members of the talks with the United States.
The newsletter adds that the leadership of this team is Shir Mohammad Abbas Stanekzai, and Mawlawi zia-ul-rahman, Maulavi Abdul Salam Hanafi, Shahabuddin Delaware, Mullah Abdul Latif Mansoor, Mullah Abdulmanan Omari, Maulavi Amir Khan Mattiqi, Mullah Mohammad Fazil Mazlum, Mullah Khairullah Khairkhah, Maulvi moti-ul-haq, Mullah Mohammad Anas Haqqani, Mullah Noorullah Nouri, Molavi Mohammad Nabi Omari and Mullah Abdul Haq are members of this group. The newsletter also adds that the team is negotiating the ongoing process with the United States, and it will carry out its work in accordance with its mandate.
However, Taliban Speaker Zabihullah Mujahid, has said that the Anas Haqani who is currently detained in the prison is set up in the negotiating team, but has not yet been abandoned.
Mojahed added that since Haqqani was a student and had no crime to be imprisoned on, then he should leave from prison and start his career in the group.
In response to the Taleban’s call for the release of Anas Haqqani, the Afghan National Directorate of Security (ANSF) has said that no decision has been taken so far on the release of Haqqani and the government is required to act in accordance with the law with those who commit crimes against the Afghan people.
