Kabul/UNI: World Health Organisation chief Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus arrived in Kabul on Monday, and is expected to meet with the Taliban leadership, including Prime Minister Mullah Hassan Akhund, his deputy Mullah Baradar, as well as government officials.

Tolo News, quoting acting Health Minister Wahid Majrooh, said that the WHO chief is also expected to speak with officials in Kabul over the World Bank's aid cut to the Afghan health sector and possibilities for restarting it.

It quoted Ahmadullah Wasiq, a member of the Cultural Commission of the Information and Culture Ministry, as saying that Ghebreyesus will meet with Prime Minister Mullah Hassan Akhund, deputy Prime Minister Mullah Baradar, and the acting foreign minister of the caretaker cabinet.

Taliban insurgents overran Afghanistan last month after entering Kabul city.
