KABUL, Afghanistan — Senior Afghan officials will travel to Pakistan soon to speak to former Taliban No.2 leader Mullah Baradar following a breakthrough in negotiations during a London summit, the Afghan presidential palace said on Wednesday.

British Prime Minister David Cameron hosted Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in London this week for talks on the stalled Afghan peace process.

"The leaders of the three countries spoke about Pakistan's role in the peace process and it was agreed that the High Peace Council delegation would travel to Pakistan in the near future to meet Mullah Baradar," the palace said in a statement.

Baradar is seen by many in Afghanistan as the key to restarting peace talks with the Afghan Taliban.
