Maldives hosts Afghan peace talks with Taliban

Maldives hosts Afghan peace talks with Taliban 20 May 2010 Senior Taliban figures have arrived in the Maldives to take part in unofficial talks aimed at resolving the continuing crisis in Afghanistan. Forty-five delegates, including representatives from the Taliban, the Afghan government and major political parties, are expected to attend the talks, which come as the Afghan security situation continues to deteriorate. The meeting has been organised by Jarir Hekmatyar, the son-in-law of Gulbadin Hakmatyar, an Afghan warlord and leader of the Hezb-e-Islami party. Gulbadin is considered to be one of Afghanistan's most wanted men and has sent his son, Feroz, to represent him at the meeting. Al Jazeera's Dan Nolan, reporting from the talks, says that Western officials have been deliberately excluded from the process. [LOL!]
