      US to Taliban: Disarm and Negotiate Peace


      Zee News reports the US has asked Taliban to put down arms and begin peace talks as it condemned the suicide attack on a popular Kabul restaurant that killed 21 people, including several foreign nationals.

      "We call again on the Taliban to put down their arms and begin peace talks which is the surest way to end the conflict in a peaceful manner," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said in a statement yesterday, says Zee News.

      "There is no possible justification for this attack which has killed innocent civilians, including Americans, working every day to help the Afghan people achieve a better future with higher education and economic assistance at the American University, United Nations, International Monetary Fund and other organizations," said Carney, adds Zee News.
