Karzai seeks talks with Pakistan, Taliban

FT.com / Asia-Pacific / Afghanistan – Karzai seeks Pakistan talks on Taliban

Hamid Karzai’s re-election as Afghanistan’s president is secure and his first priority will be to open peace talks with Pakistan in an attempt to end the Taliban insurgency raging across their shared border, one of his top aides said on Sunday.

Hamed Elmi told the Financial Times that a new Karzai-led government would quickly reach out to Asif Ali Zardari, Pakistan’s president, to advance negotiations with Taliban fighters.
