Salaam Times

KABUL -- Taliban commanders will hold talks with an Afghan government delegation in the next few days, TOLOnews reported Tuesday (November 21), quoting a former senior Taliban official.

"The host country says that at least seven or eight Taliban officials will attend the meeting, but there is no exact information about the names of the Taliban commanders who are expected to take part in the talks," said Sayed Akbar Agha.

Details about the location of the meeting were not given.

The former Taliban commander made his remarks after an Afghan delegation, led by Mohammad Karim Khalili, chairman of Afghanistan's High Peace Council, arrived in Indonesia to meet with top Indonesian officials and work toward direct talks with the Taliban.

The Afghan delegation will be in Indonesia from Sunday (November 19) to Saturday (November 25), according to the Indonesian embassy in Kabul.
