US Will Not Oppose Afghan Peace Talks with Armed Group


The United States on Monday said it will not oppose the ongoing political talks aimed at resolving conflicts between the Afghan government and the insurgent group Hezb-i-Islami led by former prime minister Gulbuddin Hekmatyar.

A Department of State official told VOA’s Afghan Service “the United States does not have any pre-conditions for supporting an Afghan-led, Afghan-owned reconciliation process.”
