Dispatch: US-Taliban Negotiations

Afghan movement "Taliban", fighting against foreign occupation of their country, has officially announced the end of all contacts with the U.S.,

In connection with these events, the Taliban refused to negotiate the opening of its office in Qatar, through which it was planned to hold a dialogue with the United States. They also froze negotiations on the exchange of captive Americans on five of his comrades who are in prison at Guantanamo Bay. Previously it was assumed that office in Qatar Taliban come into direct dialogue with Washington on the conditions of a peace agreement. With the Afghan authorities, "the Taliban" categorically refuses to talk, calling President Hamid Karzai's puppet in the hands of the United States.

The U.S. State Department had placed great hopes on the talks with the Taliban in anticipation of a U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, scheduled for 2014. Washington hoped to end the war and bring stability to the current government. Among the experts on Afghanistan is widely believed that after the withdrawal of U.S. troops in the country with renewed vigor renewed civil war in which a movement "Taliban" are a good chance of winning.
