Afghan President Hamid Karzai appealed to Taliban fighters to put down their weapons.

Karzai, demanding the Taliban to be in the political process, called on the group not to target innocent civilians.

He also said the Taliban could have opened an office in Afghanistan like other political parties instead of an office in Doha, the capital of Qatar.

Karzai's message was assumed to be an answer to the head of the Taliban, Molla Omer, who described the presidency elections to be held next year as a "waste of time".
