    The Taliban’s foreign minister, Mawlawi Amir Khan Muttaqi, has been allowed to travel to Pakistan this week to meet with Pakistani and Chinese counterparts. Pakistan requested an exemption for Muttaqi to travel between May 6 and 9 for a meeting with the foreign ministers of Pakistan and China. The Afghan foreign minister is expected to meet Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. It is not yet clear what the two ministers would discuss. Reports said Pakistan would cover all costs associated with the trip. Muttaqi has been subjected to a travel ban, asset freeze and arms embargo under Security Council sanctions.

    Last month, the UN Security Council committee had agreed to allow Muttaqi to travel to Uzbekistan for a meeting of the foreign ministers of neighbouring countries of Afghanistan to discuss security and stability matters.
