Afghan-Taliban peace talks an 'opportunity for peace'

Afghan-Taliban peace talks
The first-ever peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban are under way in the Gulf state of Qatar.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the talks a "truly momentous" breakthrough, while the head of Afghanistan's peace council called it an "exceptional opportunity for peace".

The Taliban did not mention a truce, reiterating instead that Afghanistan should be under Islamic law.

These talks follow a US-Taliban security deal reached in February.
