Al Jazeera: Taliban delegation visits Russia after Trump says talks ‘dead’

At Moscow meeting, Russia stresses importance of resumption of US-Taliban talks and group says eager to renew dialogue.

Taliban representatives have held discussions with Russian officials in Moscow, just days after US President Donald Trump declared months-long peace talks between Washington and the group “dead”.

Taliban’s Qatar-based spokesman Suhail Shaheen confirmed the meeting in the Russian capital on Friday, saying the group’s delegation held consultations with Zamir Kabulov, Russia’s special envoy for Afghanistan.
