Karzai Suspends Talks on Security Deal With US

Not happy about being left out of negotiations with the Taliban


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.
