KABUL: A top Afghan negotiating body, the High Peace Council (HPC), announced to attend a peace conference scheduled on November 9 in Russia.
Syed Ehsan Tahiri, spokesman for the HPC, told a press conference here that a four-member delegation would attend the Friday conference in Moscow .
He added that the group would be led by the council’s deputy chair Haji Deen Mohammad and accompanied by members Attaur Rehman, Abdul Khaber and Habiba Sarabi.
Taliban have already announced they will send a five-member delegation from their “Political Office in Qatar” to
the Moscow meeting.
A number of Afghan politicians, including former President Hamid Karzai, have also been invited to the gathering.
The proposed meeting was scheduled to take place in September, but due to the reservations and requests of
the Afghan government, Russia postponed it.
