The Taliban are holding secret unofficial talks at an undisclosed location in the Maldives, officials said today.

The government of Maldives, a tiny island nation in the India Ocean, issued a statement confirming the meeting.

“We cannot disclose the location of the talks, although we can confirm that they are not being held in Male or other population centres,” the statement said.

Male is the nation’s capital and one of the world’s most densely populated cities. The secret meeting could be underway on one of the nearly 1,200 islands that create this archipelago off the southern tip of India.

What is also not clear is who the Taliban are talking to.
