Hamid Karzai, the Afghan president, announced on Saturday that the US has begun peace talks with the Taliban to try to reach a settlement to the decade-long war in Afghanistan.
The revelations come just a few days after the US shifted its position on the Taliban, suggesting that the group can be treated separately from al-Qaeda by convincing the UN Security Council to split up its sanctions list imposing asset freezes and travel restrictions.
