Kabul talks to Taliban ‘every day’
CANBERRA-ReutersAfghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai said his government talks to the Taliban every day through intermediaries, according to an interview by Australia’s SBS television. “We talk to the Taliban every day.
We were talking to them just a few days ago somewhere around this region,” Karzai said in an interview taped a week ago in Kabul with SBS, adding his contact with the group’s one-eyed leader Mullah Omar was through indirect means. “(But) not personally,” Karzai said when asked if he had spoken with Omar.
“I mean not directly, person to person. But through intermediaries, yes.”
