A very short quote from AAN’s Thomas Ruttig in this interesting article looking at the general mood in Afghanistan (or amongst commentators) about possible talks with the Taleban:

Thomas Ruttig, co-director of the Afghan Analysts Network, said the issue has become “very polarizing” among Afghan citizens, partly because the four-country group has not revealed what incentives might be offered to insurgents, or what concessions might be granted.
