Afghani president Karzai appealed to Taliban to start negotiations immediately. Taliban insist on the US troops withdrawal before negotiations, but Karzai suggested that a negotiated agreement will speed up the withdrawal.

No way Karzai can make such a bold offer without American approval. Any agreement with Taliban will bring them into the government, and soon after American withdrawal they will castrate Karzai as mojahedeen did to the Soviet puppet Najibullah.
