FARAKHABAR: Afghanistan Has Agreed to Attend Beijing Conference
President Ashraf Ghani in a phone conversation with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Monday agreed to a meeting which will be held in Beijing and will include a Taliban delegation to discuss Afghanistan’s peace agreement, presidential spokesman Sediq Sediqqi said.
The meeting, to be held in the “near future,” will be the first time that China hosts delegations from both the Kabul government and the Taliban to exchange views on the peace process.
“The date of the meeting will be announced by China. The Afghan government will soon share a list of its participants with the Chinese government,” Sediqqi added.
Quoted in a report by Iran Front Page, Seyyed Rasoul Mousavi, the Iranian Foreign Minister’s special assistant and Director General of the Southeast Asian Department, said Iran has twice refused invitations to participate in meetings on Afghanistan.
