KABUL (AFP) - now's the "proper second" for peace in Afghanistan, President Ashraf Ghani stated Wednesday as he another time called on the Taliban to negotiate along with his government.

The Taliban have steadfastly refused to talk about peace with Ghani, whom they keep in mind a US stooge heading an illegitimate regime.

but a sequence of talks in recent days seems to have shifted the needle in Afghanistans struggle, with the us and the Taliban claiming to have made widespread development for the duration of a summit in Doha.

additionally, some participants of Ghanis circle attended overlapping talks inside the Qatari capital with the Taliban, although most effective in what they referred to as a "private capacity".

"in the beyond 18 years the time became not right for peace, for a practical peace. Nowadays is the proper second," Ghani said at an european anti-corruption convention being held in Kabul.

"If we lose this opportunity then the duty (for the loss) is huge."

Ghani harassed that the Taliban and his authorities must negotiate.

"we are the 2 warring facets," he said.

Following days of talks last week with US peace envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, the Taliban met Afghan representatives at an "intra-Afghan speak".

america has insisted on such talks and the 2 Afghan sides issued a joint decision pledging a "roadmap for peace" for the struggle-torn united states.
