According to media reports on August 12, Afghan government officials have held secret talks with detained former high-ranking Taliban commander Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar.

Reuters news agency cited Afghan national security adviser Rangin Spanta as saying the talks were held in Pakistan two months ago.

Baradar has been detained since he was captured in Karachi by U.S. and Pakistani forces in 2010.

Pakistani Interior Minister Rehman Malik confirmed the meeting took place.

Baradar was a close associate of Taliban leader Mullah Muhammed Omar, and Afghan officials have expressed the hope he could play an important role in facilitating possible peace talks between the government and the Taliban.

These types of statements have been made over the past several years and have proved to not deliver anything - the aim is to give hope to the US population. As the insurgency has maintained over the past 10 years, they will speak with the government of Afghanistan once all of the foreign occupiers have left. That will be in December 2014, and not before.
