Report: British hold secret talks with Taliban    2007-12-26 04:11:24    

British secret services held talks with members of the Islamist extremist Taliban in Afghanistan, the British daily Telegraph reported Wednesday.
London (dpa) - British secret services held talks with members of the Islamist extremist Taliban in Afghanistan, the British daily Telegraph reported Wednesday.

The news comes as two foreign diplomats were ordered expelled from Afghanistan for alleged talks with the Taliban.

According to the Telegraph, agents from Britain's Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) held "jirgas" (formal discussions) with Taliban insurgents during the summer in the presence of Afghan officials.

About two weeks ago, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown stated his government would not negotiate with "terrorists."

Meanwhile, it was reported that two Western diplomats - from the European Union and the United Nations - are facing expulsion from Afghanistan for alleged talks with Taliban insurgents without the knowledge of the government in Kabul.

According to the Telegraph, both diplomats are experts in Afghanistan who have worked in the country for two decades.
