More rewards for evil. “Afghanistan: Kabul taking steps to talk with Taliban, says ex-president,” from AKI :
Peshawar, 3 Sept. (AKI/DAWN) – The former Afghan president Burhanuddin Rabbani has said that the Afghan government has taken measures to engage the Taliban in dialogue to try and restore peace in the country.
“Without the participation of Taliban and [Afghan warlord] Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, peace cannot be established in the war-ravaged country,” said Rabbani who was president of Afghanistan from 1992-96.
Rabbani was speaking at a one-day seminar entitled “Pak-Afghan Relations” in the northern Pakistani city of Peshawar on Sunday.
“Talks are a better way to resolve problems than guns. Wars make problems worse instead of resolving them. We have to adopt the path of talks,” he said.
