Taliban team heads to Islamabad for talks with officials

Shaheen said the delegation went to Islamabad at the invitation of Pakistan and that they will meet with high-ranking Pakistani officials to discuss issues around Afghan peace among other topics.
Pakistan has not commented on this yet.
This latest development comes just days after Pakistan imposed sanctions on “terrorists” and “terrorist associated groups” in order to avoid being demoted from the Financial Action Task Force’s (FATF) grey list.
The sanctions include an international travel ban. 
Islamabad also seized bank accounts and assets belonging to terrorists in the country.
 According to reports, 88 people including Mullah Abdul Baradar had sanctions applied to them. 
Pakistan has long been accused of sheltering and supporting Taliban leaders but Islamabad has continued to deny the charges.
Pakistan meanwhile has been on FATF’s grey list since June 2018 and was given a final warning in February.
