Russia, US & China to press Taliban to hold talks with Afghan politicians, civilians

AVA- Representatives of the three countries will meet in Moscow on Thursday hoping to accelerate the pace of talks with the Taliban. The US special representative for Afghanistan reconciliation, Zalmay Khalilzad, who has held several rounds of direct talks with Taliban officials in Qatar, will attend the meeting in Moscow, Reuters reports. The Taliban have long refused to talk to the US-backed Afghan government, denouncing it as a foreign “puppet.” The movement also announced the launch of their annual spring offensive this month.
