Taliban talks in Oslo a ‘positive icebreaking meeting’ — participant

A meeting between the Taliban and Afghan civil society members served as an “icebreaker” in Oslo, on the eve of talks between the Islamist fundamentalists and Western diplomats, an Afghan participant says.

“It was a positive icebreaking meeting,” feminist activist Jamila Afghani tells AFP, adding: the “Taliban displayed goodwill. They listened patiently and responded to most of our concerns. Let’s see what their actions will be, based on their words.”
