Peace Talks with the Taliban
There’s word from Afghanistan’s President that the U.S. is in secret talks with the Taliban.
FOX News Radio’s Chris Stanley has the story:
The U.S. and Afghan governments have begun secret three-way talks with the Taliban. This, according to Afghan President Hamid Karzai, interviewed by the Wall Street Journal.
Karzai says he believes most Taliban are “definitively” interested in a peace settlement, that “they have families, they have children, they are suffering a tough time.”
He wouldn’t specify the location of the talks or give any further details.
A senior Obama administration official saying the U.S. is assuring Karzai that “all we’re interested in is seeing if we could open the door for Afghan-to-Afghan talks”, and cautioned against reading too much into the three-way session.

The Presidents of Afghanistan and Iran are in Pakistan for a three-way summit that’s to focus on steps Islamabad can take to facilitate peace talks with the Afghan Taliban.

The Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is also likely to talk about a proposed pipeline that would
deliver natural gas from his country to Pakistan. The U.S. opposing this because of tensions over Iran’s nuclear program.
