Zukunft für Afghanistan: Dialog mit den Taliban

< 1 min

Tageszeitung, 13 June 2015

Op-ed (in German) by AAN’s Thomas Ruttig on the track II meetings organised by the non-governmental Pugwash Conference between Taleban members and politicians and civil society members from Kabul. He argues that the ‘Kabul side’ was much less prepared for the talks then the Taleban, result of the blockade of any meaningful inner-societal discussion and consensus-building by the previous Karzai government and that there is an urgent need to coordinate and prepare – which should be supported by the withdrawing international community.
