Tageszeitung, 18 July 2018

In this guest article for the Berlin-based daily, AAN’s Thomas Ruttig summarises latest reports that the White House had ordered diplomats to seek direct talks with the Taleban and break the diplomatic deadlock between the insurgents and the government. He also indicates that the form of US proposals indicates that Washington might agree in a change of Afghanistan’s political system to accommodate the Taleban (in German).
