Eight or nine representatives of the Taliban’s delegations from Qatar are currently inside the Afghan presidential palace, a source there tells CNN.
Among them is Anas Haqqani, brother of the deputy Taliban leader Sirajuddin Haqqani, the source added.
Sirajuddin Haqqani, is also the head of the Haqqani network, a family-run terrorist group that is aligned with the Taliban as well as al-Qaeda.
According to previous CNN reporting, the Haqqani network is considered by security experts to be one of the most significant threats to stability in Afghanistan. It has been blamed for numerous large-scale attacks in Afghanistan.
Doha hosted talks last week between Taliban representatives and Afghan government officials, along with envoys from the United States, China, Pakistan, the UN, the European Union, among others.
