U.S. Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad says the Taliban are not ready to agree to a ceasefire ahead of talks with the Afghan government, fearing a loss of leverage and an ability to win concessions. He says the Taliban believe that agreeing to a ceasefire for an extended period would make it harder for them to get their troops back to the battlefield should the talks fail. Mr. Khalilzad also says the Taliban are reluctant to sit down alone with the Afghan government fearing it would give the government an advantage over them and that they would prefer to enter talks with a third party involved. close
