The CIA declined to remark on the Taliban meeting yet the conversations probably elaborate the looming August 31 cutoff time for the US military to withdraw from Afghanistan, it added.

Nonetheless, a Taliban representative on Monday warned that there will be “consequences ” if the US and UK looked for an expansion to the August 31 cutoff time for the US-drove troop withdrawal from the conflict torn country.

On Monday, before details of the secret meet arose, State Department representative Ned Price was asked about for what reason senior US authorities hadn’t locked in with Baradar given the stakes in Afghanistan.

Price said “our discussions with the Taliban have been operational, tactical, they have been focused largely on our near-term operations and near-term goals … what is going on at the airport compound … that is what we’re focused on at the moment.”
