Arab News reports that the head of group’s political office, Abdul Ghani Baradar, is leading the delegation.
A former Taliban spokesman Abdul Hai Mutmayen has told Arab News that Mullah Baradar is leading a delegation of Taliban leaders during the visit to Beijing.
Mutmayen further added “It seems that Taliban leaders are making efforts to hold consultations and exchange their views with key stakeholders ahead of the next round. The visit is an indication that the seventh round is important.”
This comes as China has offered to host intra-Afghan talks in a bid to help end the ongoing conflict in the country.
Meanwhile, the Taliban leaders have said the group could accept China as a guarantor if  they reach a peace deal with the United States.
