Afghan negotiators had expected to fly to Doha last week after the government completion of release of almost all prisoners the Taliban were demanding ahead of talks.
However, their trip has repeatedly been delayed.
Sediqi said that the negotiating team was fully ready to begin talks, as he blamed the Taliban for the delay.
