Taliban reconciliation needs to be done in Afghan
Washington: Observing that reconciliation
with Taliban and other insurgent groups have to be Afghan led,
the US has said that the process needs to be done in a way
that meets the requirement of the war-torn nation.
"We`ve said from the beginning that from our perspective,
reconciliation has to be Afghan-led, so we have to do this in
a way that meets Afghan requirements," State Department
spokesperson Victoria Nuland told reporters.
"So we now need to talk to them about where we go from
here. That said, we also believe that continuing trilateral
dialogue US, Afghanistan, Pakistan is of value. So he`ll
be making that point," she said.
Responding to the comments made by Afghan President Hamid
Karzai that the talks with Taliban has been stopped, the
spokesperson said the issue would be discussed by the Special
US Representative for Pakistan and Afghanistan, Marc Grossman,
when he visits Kabul later this week.
"Well, first of all, he (Karzai) gave those comments just
before leaving for India. He`s been on his state visit to
India. He`s coming home, and Marc Grossman will be there and
will have an opportunity to exchange views with him on this
and will also be going on to Pakistan," she said.
