Wochit 1:03 mins

Afghan President Hamid Karzai is suspending talks with the U.S. to protest the American military's failure to reach out to the Taliban. The talks were meant to cover a security deal and which troops would remain in Afghanistan after 2014. Karzai wants one-on-one talks with the Taliban, but U.S. military officials are talking to the Taliban alone before letting the Karzai's administration in. Senior Obama administration officials said that.U.S. and Taliban representatives will soon meet,for the first time to begin what are expected to be long and complex-negotiations for a peaceful settlement to the war in Afghanistan. In a potentially groundbreaking move, the Taliban said they were prepared to take the first step towards peace negotiations with the Afghanistan government after 12 years of war.
