The Afghan government has changed its tone towards the Taliban as it seeks a political solution

India has categorically claimed caution about US-backed efforts to reach a political solution with Afghanistan’s Taliban, said to have warned against success for the dark forces of terrorism.

Indian Ambassador Nirupama Rao to United States specifically voiced strong support for US led military efforts in Afghanistan but said India was keenly watching tentative attempts for talks with the Taliban.

Mr. Marc Grossman US envoy held talks this weekend in Afghanistan with President Hamid Karzai and said he found strong support for peace efforts, since the Taliban keen to open an office in Qatar to facilitate political discussions.
