Afghan Taliban deny Biradar tasked to hold talks with Kabul

23 December, 2013

PESHAWAR: The Afghan Taliban have refuted reports by sections of the media that they have authorised Mulla Abdul Ghani Biradar to hold peace talks with the Afghan government.

A statement issued by the Taliban-led Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan said certain media organisations quoting unknown sources had reported that Biradar had been deputed to talk to the Kabul regime.

It said Biradar was still detained in Pakistan without charge, was under restrictions and was unable to visit his family and friends. It stressed that he had not been tasked to hold peace talks with the government in Kabul.
