Afghanistan expects talks with Taliban soon

New Delhi, Feb 05 (ANI): Afghanistan expects to restart peace talks with the Taliban within six months according to the country's chief executive Abdullah Abdullah who asserted that he has pinned hopes on factions within the Islamist militant group to give up violence.Talks between Kabul and the Afghan Taliban have been on hold since efforts collapsed last year after it became known that Mullah Mohammad Omar, the movement's founder and leader, had been dead for two years which threw the group into disarray.Abdullah said that Omar's death had left the Taliban deeply divided, making peace negotiations complicated, but there was reason to hope that talks to end 15 years of bloodshed in the South Asian country could resume.
