The upcoming talks between United States and Taliban representatives which were scheduled to be held in Pakistan, has been postponed, Taliban confirmed in a statement. As per details, the talks were cancelled because some members of Taliban representative could not attend the meeting because they are on “the US and UN blacklist.”
Both Islamabad and Washington officially never confirmed the talks after Taliban last week announced that their team would be visiting Pakistan on February 18.
“The Islamic Emirate (Taliban) had arranged for their representatives to participate but unfortunately, most members of the negotiations team were unable to travel due to the US and UN blacklist and the meeting was postponed,” claimed a Taliban spokesperson. “It should be reminded that the delay was not related to the Islamic Emirate because the Islamic Emirate had held complete preparations for the meeting. All media reports in this regard such as cancellation by the Islamic Emirate or due to other reasons are untrue,” he added.
