The Former Canadian Ambassador to Afghanistan Chris Alexander tells Back Story Host Dana Lewis, there is no point in talking to The Taliban. The only way to peace are sanctions on Pakistan which directs the violence.
While Afghan Ambassador to The UK, Said Tayeb Jawad, says The Afghan Government has to talk to The Taliban, but the violence has to stop, and The Taliban has to cut ties with Al Qaeda. So far it has not. And in the meantime U.S. Forces should remain in Afghanistan so it doesn't return to what it was in 9-11, a launch pad for terrorism.
