A Taliban delegation from Afghanistan led by its chief negotiator has held talks with Foreign Minister Wang Yi in China, as its fighters take control of around half the country up to its border with the Chinese region of Xinjiang, and US air strikes continue to support Afghan security forces, APA reports citing South China Morning Post.

Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, a co-founder of the Taliban who also heads the Taliban’s political office in Qatar, met Wang in the northern city of Tianjin on Wednesday, according to sources familiar with the arrangements.

It was the first time a senior member of the organisation had visited China since the Taliban’s capture of several key districts in Badakhshan and Kandahar provinces.
