A Taliban delegation led by chief negotiator Abdul Ghani Baradar is in China for talks with Foreign Minister Wang Yi, when his fighters claimed control of about half of Afghanistan, until border with the Chinese region of Xinjiang, despite the US airstrikes which continue to support the Afghan security forces. This was reported by the South China Morning Post, citing well-informed sources. Mullah Baradar, who also heads the Taliban political office in Qatar, will meet Wang today in Tianjin, a few days after the visit of US Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman.
