A senior official of the US Defense Department has said that signs of improvement have been seen in talks with the Taliban as he addressed a debate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
Randall Schriver, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Asian and Pacific Security Affairs, said at the debate that Taliban can be part of a stable political future.
He said one of the main points of the talks between the US and India defense secretaries would be ways to find a solution for the Afghanistan crisis.
“We are seeing some signs that a political process is moving. President (Ashraf) Ghani is pursuing another ceasefire and we will see if the Taliban are going to step up to that,” he said.
