Taliban, Afghan government meeting near Paris

After years of deriding Afghanistan’s government and army as corrupt tools of Western occupiers, the taliban have begun saying they are willing to govern alongside other Afghan factions and even to adopt the current American-financed army as their own

Afghan and American officials wonder whether any offer of compromise is legitimate or just tactical maneuvering to gain public support
