Former Taliban leader have been held in UAE

 

The Afghan High Council confirmed about the former Taliban leader Agha Jan Mutasim has been arrested in United Arab Emirates. The former Taliban leader was missing in United Arab Emirates during the past few days. He was a senior Taliban leader and was supporting the Afghan peace process with the Taliban. Afghan High Peace Council following a statement said the detention of Agha Jan Mutasim clarifies that certain elements in the region are disrupting the Afghan peace talks. The statement further added that those individuals, who are struggling to resume Afghan peace process, have been victimized. The High Peace Council insisted that Afghan peace talks should take place inside Afghanistan and negotiations have taken place with the UAE officials to end limitations and resolve the issue of Agha Jan Mutasim. Agha Jan Mutasim met with the senior members of the Afghan high peace council (HPC) in Dubai last month and was due to meet with the Afghan peace delegation in the near future in UAE. Mutasim had agreed to hold more talks to push the peace process and to break more Taliban leaders from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. The initiative by Agha Jan Mutasim to hold talks between the Afghan government and Taliban militants had annoyed the Taliban group. Another senior Taliban leader Mullah Raqeeb was also killed by unknown gunmen in Peshawar city of Pakistan, a day after he attended the talks in Dubai..
