Tageszeitung, 8 July 2015

In the Berlin daily, AAN’s Thomas Ruttig reports about and analyses the Pakistan-hosted first official direct talks between the Afghan government and the Taleban (in German). He writes that there were some unclarities linked to the talks, first of all whether the Taleban representatives were authorised to take part by their own leadership. He also says the President Ghani who has tried over month to open a direct line of talks via Islamabad faces tough domestic resistance against that step, being accued of a “sellout” to most Afghans’ “favourite foe”.
