The United States and Afghan governments started secret three-way talks with the Taliban in the past month to prepare the ground for future talks, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Karzai also told the Journal that he believes the Taliban are “definitely” interested in a peace settlement. American officials cautioned against reading too much into what came out of the three-way talks, the location of which Karzai declined to specify.
