(Abstract online only:) In the article published in the journal of the Portuguese Instituto da Defesa Nactional (IDN), AAN’s Thomas Ruttig looks at the repercussions of the killing of Afghan HPC chairman Burhanuddin Rabbani and warns to interpret the assassination (the background of which has remained unclear) as a ‘no’ of the Taleban to peace talks. He further looks at the following questions: How effective was the HPC so far? What do the Taleban want politically? What do the US want? Finally, he makes a few suggestions how to drive possible talks towards a peace process.
