Russia’s Special representative for Afghanistan says that Taliban opposed with the composition of Kabul delegation for Beijing Intra-Afghan talks and that is why everything has been frozen.
The date for conducting a meeting of the inter-Afghan dialogue in Beijing has not been coordinated yet because Taliban members are dissatisfied with the composition of Kabul’s delegation, Russian Special Presidential Representative for Afghanistan and Director of the Second Asia Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry Zamir Kabulov said on Monday.

“It is a question for the Chinese,” he said, answering an inquiry from TASS. “They’ve stalled everything.”[The date] has not been determined yet. The Taliban members are dissatisfied with the composition of the delegation, which the Afghan president [Ashraf Ghani] demands. That is why everything has been frozen.”
Kabulov earlier had said that the Russian side expects the inter-Afghan meeting in Beijing to be held before the end of this year.
