Taliban break off talks with U.S.

March 15, 2012

KABUL, Afghanistan — The Taliban militant group says it is suspending talks with the United States.

Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said in a statement Thursday that the United States kept changing the terms of the negotiations.

Mujahid says that the Taliban only wanted to discuss prisoner transfers and the establishment of a political office in Qatar, but U.S. negotiators wanted to broaden the discussion. Mujahid says they did not want the Afghan government included in the talks.
