Deal or no deal: Intra-Afghan talks hang by a thread as Kabul, Taliban set conditions

  • On Thursday, the Taliban announced, for the first time, a timetable for the start of talks with Kabul after delaying them twice due to pre-conditions set by the group and Ghani’s government
  • Some Afghan analysts believe the Taliban’s insistence on further prisoner releases, and the government’s emphasis on a halt in insurgent activity, could block dialogue
