“It is in everyone’s interest to continue talking to the Taleban” – interview with AAN co-founder Martine van Bijlert in the Dutch daily. She says she doesn’t think that this was “the definite end of the talks” and that they can be resumed. The alternative for the US “is continuation of the current impasse or a unilateral withdrawal of troops, but then they are blamed if things go wrong in Afghanistan.”
