Afghanistan's Ghani offers peace talks with Taliban 'without condition'
Afghan President Ashraf Ghani offered recognition of Taliban insurgents as a legitimate political group on Wednesday as part of a proposed political process that could lead to talks aimed at ending more than 16 years of war.

 

The offer, made at the start of an international conference aimed at creating a platform for peace talks, adds to a series of signals
from both the Western-backed government and the Taliban suggesting a greater willingness to consider dialogue.

 

Ghani proposed a ceasefire and a release of prisoners. He also said he would be ready to accept a review of the constitution as part of a pact with the Taliban, who have so far refused to accept direct talks with the government in Kabul.
