Afghanistan reveals secret US-Taliban negotiations

afghanistan reveals secret us-taliban negotiations

Meetings between U.S. officials and a Taliban spokesperson meant to stay hush-hush were made public by the Afghan government.

A report released Monday by The Associated Press says that Tayyab Aga, an intermediary for Taliban leader Mullah Muhammad Omar, met at least three times with American officials while the U.S. tried to dismantle the ongoing battle between the Taliban and the United States.

The AP, quoting a former U.S. official, says the clandestine meetings were held in Germany and Qatar, starting in late 2010 and were held twice this spring.
