Pakistani political expert Rahimullah Yousufzai told TOLOnews recently that Afghanistan and Pakistan governments are trying to hide their meeting with Mullah Ghani Bradar, who is currently in Pakistan's custody after being arrested in Karachi in 2009.
The alleged meeting between the Afghan delegation and Mullah Bradar was denied by the Afghan Ambassador to Pakistan, Mohammad Omar Dawoodzai, and Pakistan's Interior Minister Rehman Malik.
"This meeting will not have any benefits because Mullah Bradar was held two year ago," Yousufzai told TOLOnews in an exclusive interview.
Mullah Ghani Bradar, Taliban's number two in command was held in Pakistan two years ago. His arrest angered President Karzai because Mullah Bradar had secret talks with the Pakistani government to reach a peace process.
The talks between US officials and Taliban were suspended several months ago as the Taliban accused the US for not having a clear vision of peace. According to Dawoodzai, meetings between the two sides have resumed.
