World Bulletin / News Desk

Afghan political parties united against President Hamid Karzai recently opened talks with the Taliban and Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, hoping to broker peace ahead of next year's exit of international combat troops and a presidential race that will determine Karzai's successor, Taliban and opposition leaders said.

It's the first confirmation that the opposition has opened its own, new channel of discussions to try to find a political resolution to the war, now in its 12th year.
