Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, the Taliban‘s co-founder and one its highest-ranking officials, arrived in Afghanistan on Tuesday.

A senior delegation led by Baradar landed at Kandahar airport in the afternoon, a Taliban spokesman announced on Twitter on Tuesday.

Mullah Baradar is deputy head of the Taliban and is in charge of the Taliban‘s political office in Doha.

In February 2020, he signed the agreement with the US on behalf of the Islamist militant organization to end the US-led military mission in Afghanistan.

Baradar, who according to Interpol was born in 1968, spoke with then-US president Donald Trump and met with former US secretary of state Mike Pompeo several times.

It was unclear where Taliban leader Hibatullah Akhundzada and his other deputies were.
