Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with a Taliban delegation hours after mortar shells slammed into different parts of Afghanistan's capital, Kabul, on Saturday, killing at least eight people. The mortar barrage came as Pompeo was preparing to meet with representatives of the Afghan government and the Taliban, who are holding talks in the Arabian Gulf nation of Qatar, though progress has been slow. Abdullah Abdullah, the Afghan government's chief negotiator in peace talks, condemned Saturday's attack in a tweet calling it a "cowardly" act. Members of Taliban's peace negotiation team met with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in the Qatari capital Doha, on Saturday. There have been calls for a cease-fire if peace talks in Doha are to continue.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India congratulated Mr. Biden, writing on Twitter that during his time as President Barack Obama’s vice president, Mr. Biden had made a “critical and invaluable” contribution to strengthening U.S.-India relations. “Your success is pathbreaking, and a matter of immense pride not just for your chittis, but also for all Indian-Americans,” Mr. Modi wrote. Still, through a spokesman, Mr. Duterte congratulated Mr. Biden. Mr. Suga will have the chance to reset with Mr. Biden, though Japan may now face more competition for the U.S. president’s attention as Mr. Biden moves to restore diplomatic ties around the world. It remains to be seen whether Mr. Biden will speak by telephone with Ms. Tsai.
