Taliban, Karzai allies to attend Afghanistan meeting in France

Rfi. Tony Cross.

The Taliban are to attend a conference near Paris along with supporters of President Hamid Karzai and peaceful opposition parties this week. The meeting comes after the Afghan government published a peace roadmap, which invites the rebels to take official positions if they give up violence.

The Taliban have agreed to send two of its members to the three-day conference, which starts on Wednesday, but say they will not be negotiating there, according to the Pakistani paper The News.
