Afghanistan News LIVE Updates: The announcement of the new Afghan government was further deferred to next week after several high-level meetings between top Taliban leaders. Members of the new cabinet will be named in two-three days, said Ahmadullah Wasiq, deputy head of the Taliban’s cultural commission. The announcement comes even as Taliban and resistance forces battled on Saturday to control the Panjshir valley north of Kabul, the last Afghan province holding out against the Islamist group, with both sides claiming to have the upper hand without producing conclusive evidence. Meanwhile, Qatar’s ambassador to Afghanistan said that the Kabul airport reopened to receive aid, according to Al Jazeera news channel, which also cited its correspondent as saying two domestic flights were operated from Kabul to the cities of Mazar-i-Sharif and Kandahar.
