Afghanistan: Can peace prevail?

The English language website of German international broadcaster Deutsche Welle, in another review of the Afghan peace negotiations, quoted AAN’s Thomas Ruttig as saying:

“I’m convinced that if a peace deal is arrived upon only bilaterally, without the Afghan government … such a deal will be dead in the water,” Thomas Ruttig, co-director of Afghanistan Analysts Network, told DW from Kabul. “A deal over the heads of the Afghan population, which fears that their rights, enshrined in the current constitution, might be compromised or sacrificed, might not work.”
