Top officials of Afghanistan’s interim government have arrived in Turkey for talks with senior Turkish officials on Thursday, according to an official.

Afghanistan’s acting Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi is leading a high-level delegation to Turkey, Afghan Foreign Ministry spokesperson Abdul Qahar Balkhi said on Twitter.

“The delegation will hold talks with senior Turkish officials on issues of mutual interest,” Balkhi said, adding that the invitation was extended by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.

This will be first high-level contact between Turkey and the new administration in Afghanistan after the Taliban took power on Aug. 15.

Balkhi said the two sides will discuss how to improve bilateral relations, trade, humanitarian aid, migration and air transport issues.
