    In Afghanistan there's been a secret meeting involving the Afghan government, the Pakistani government and the Taliban, Al Jazeera has learned.

    No one would say what was on the agenda, but each delegate was supposedly attending the talks in a central Kabul hotel in a personal capacity.

    Among those in attendance were Mullah Zaeef, Taliban's ex-ambassador to Pakistan, Mirwais Yasini, the deputy spokesman for the Afghan parliament, and Hikmat Karzai, a cousin of Hamid Karzai, the Afghan president.
