Taliban, Afghan Delegations Meet For Talks In Moscow
Representatives of Taliban militants have met for a second day in Moscow with an Afghan delegation led by former President Hamid Karzai. The talks have been described as an "intra-Afghan" peace process -- despite the absence of Kabul government representatives. The militants are demanding the withdrawal of all foreign troops from Afghanistan as a first step in the peace process. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani criticized the talks, calling them a "fantasy" for excluding the country's elected representatives.
