Kerry says Taliban Doha office is good news

Kerry says Taliban Doha office is good news

Jun 18, 2013 - 22:12

WASHINGTON (PANinfo-icon): US Secretary of State John Kerry said Tuesday they were pleased with what was happening in Qatar, calling the opening of a Talibaninfo-icon office in the Arab country as “good news”.


“It is good news,” Kerry told reporters in his first official comment on the Taliban office in Doha, as senior officials confirmed in Washington that the US would be holding direct talks with the Taliban in the next few days.

Kerry, however, made no other comment on the latest development, which officials described as the first significant step towards achieving the goal of long term peace in the region.
