A delegation led by the acting foreign minister of Afghanistan's interim Taliban government arrived in Turkey and met with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Thursday afternoon, local media reported. 

No further details about the meeting, which is believed to be the first high-level talks between the two governments since Taliban's takeover in mid-August, were given.

A press conference is expected, according to local media.

"The delegation will hold talks with senior Turkish officials on issues of mutual interest," Abdul Qahar Balkhi, foreign ministry spokesperson of Afghanistan's acting government, had previously wrote on Twitter.
