Afghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai says he will peace talks with the Taliban after being unable to its leaders. He said he would instead move his to talking to Pakistan. Mr Karzai believes his country has a better of achieving peace and security by engaging with neighbouring Pakistan. Karzai told leaders in Kabul on Friday that he could not continue with Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar because he nor any of the Taliban council could be found. He asked: “Who is the other in the peace process? I do not have any answer than saying the other side in the talks is Pakistan. This is we cannot find Mullah Mohammed Omar.

President Karzai’s statement days after the assassination of former Afghan president Burhanuddin Rabbani by a suicide . The Taliban has neither confirmed nor responsibility for Mr Rabbani’s killing, President Karzai believes the group was responsible. He spoke of his at the manner in which the ex-president was killed, saying: “A messenger comes as a Taliban council member and kills, and [the Taliban] confirm nor reject it.” Mr Rabbani was Afghanistan's chief official in of negotiations with the Taliban. Mr Karzai said the assassination convinced him to focus on with Islamabad. It is the latest in a series of high killings of Afghan officials.
