Indian officials meet Taliban in Kabul
New Delhi: The acting Taliban foreign minister of Afghanistan met with a delegation of Indian officials on Thursday to discuss bilateral ties and humanitarian supplies, according to the Taliban, in what was the first such visit to Kabul since the tumultuous US exit last year.
Poverty and hunger have risen dramatically in Afghanistan since Islamist terrorists seized power following the US withdrawal, and India has responded by sending food grains and other relief.
Mawlawi Amir Khan Muttaqi, the Taliban’s acting foreign minister, met with an Indian foreign ministry delegation led by senior official J.P. Singh.
On Twitter, Taliban foreign ministry spokesperson Abdul Qahar Balkhi claimed, “The meeting focused on India-Afghan diplomatic relations, bilateral trade, and humanitarian relief.”
