The first official meeting of both sides in the intra-Afghan talks, which was scheduled for Monday morning, has been postponed because key issues have still not been decided, according to members of Kabul's "contact group" who met with their Taliban counterparts to establish a framework for the way forward.

The advance groups of the two negotiation teams in Doha have yet to decide on an agenda, the code of conduct and the scheduling of the first round of the intra-Afghan talks, say members of the Kabul delegation.

The contact groups held their first meeting on Sunday evening and the second was scheduled for Monday morning, but it did not happen, said negotiators from the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, who added that there were no decisions made about the agenda of the talks during the official first meeting.
