A delegation of Taliban government led by acting Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi, has met with Ahmad Massoud, leader of the Resistance Front, and Ismail Khan, the former governor of Herat province.
A video released by Taliban’s Qatar-based office, in which Muttaqi said: “yes, we met with Ahmad Massoud, Commander Ismail Khan and other Afghans. We assured all of them that they can come back and live an unworried life.”
The Resistance Front has yet to confirm the meeting between Muttaqi and Ahmad Massoud. Although, Hafiz Mansoor, a member of the Resistance Front, has said the meeting was held.
Iranian media, quoting the spokesman of Iran’s foreign ministry, Saeed Khatibzada, reported that Tehran hosted the meeting, adding that the Afghan parties had good discussions.
A delegation of the Islamic Emirate left Kabul for Tehran last Saturday to meet with the country’s officials over a range of issues.
“In this visit, political, economic, transit issues as well as (Afghan) refugees will be discussed between the two sides,” said Hafiz Zia Ahmad, deputy spokesman for the foreign minister.
