Taliban in China to Hold Talks with Officials
A "Taliban" delegation will visit Beijing to hold talks with Chinese officials, and a Taliban spokesman states that "Afghan land will not be used against the security of any country."
A Taliban spokesman announced that a delegation met with the Chinese Minister of Foreign Affairs and other Chinese diplomats in China.
Mohammed Naeem said Wednesday that during this visit, the Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar-led nine-member delegation "held separate meetings with the Chinese Minister of Foreign Affairs Wang Yi, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, and the Chinese Special Representative for Afghan Affairs."
According to the spokesman, the delegation's visit began Tuesday and lasted two days. He also did not reveal the exact location where the meetings were held in China.
"The Islamic Emirate assured China that Afghanistan's soil would not be used against any country's security," Naeem told AFP. "They [China] promised not to interfere in Afghanistan's affairs, but instead help to solve problems and bring peace," he added.
