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, TOLO News has reported.
“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.

“We are aware that the (Afghan) government and Hamid Karzai do not agree on the list (of participants),” said Sayed Akbar Agha, head of Shorai Nejat Afghanistan, a political movement in Kabul.
