KABUL, Afghanistan (AP)—The Afghan president on Wednesday suspended talks with the United States on a new security deal to protest the way his government was being left out of initial peace negotiations with the Taliban meant to find ways to end the nearly 12-year war.

The move by Hamid Karzai could derail the peace process even before it has begun.
