TALIBAN MEETS WITH CIA
It came as Mujahid said he was not aware of any meeting between the Taliban and the CIA – but he did not deny that the meeting took place.
CIA Director William Burns met Taliban leader Abdul Ghani Baradar in Kabul on Monday, two US sources told Reuters.
Leaders of the G7 countries – Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States – are due to meet virtually later on Tuesday to discuss the crisis in Afghanistan and President Joe Biden to stay longer.
Countries have evacuated nearly 60,000 people over the past 10 days and troops are desperately trying to meet the deadline agreed with the Taliban for the withdrawal of foreign forces, a NATO diplomat said.
“Every foreign force member is working at a war-footing pace to meet the deadline,” the official said.
