China to Host Intra-Afghan Peace Conference: Source

KABUL – China is expected to soon host an intra-Afghan peace conference, a source in the Afghan government told 1TV on Monday.
According to reports, the Afghan government and politicians have been invited to the meeting.
Dawa Khan Minapal, deputy presidential spokesman, did not confirm or reject if the meeting would take place, but he said that any Afghan peace talks should involve the government.
The source said that efforts were underway to form delegation involving government officials and politicians to use China conference as an opportunity to convince the Taliban enter into negotiations with Afghans.
Recently, a Taliban delegation had met with Chinese special representatives for Afghanistan in Beijing. The meeting came after US President Trump unexpectedly called off talks with the Taliban earlier this month.
A Taliban delegation also visited Beijing in June. At the time, China said it favored an intra-Afghan dialogue to end the 18-year-long war.
The topic of discussion with Chinese officials was reportedly the canceled talks with the US.
