Default Talking with the Taliban

Yet another think tank paper to read one day, with a renowned SME and a Kings War Studies professor:
Quote:
This new RUSI Briefing Paper explores the new Taliban leadership landscape and, within this, the potential for restarting peace talks.

Based on interviews with Taliban personnel the paper argues that there is substantial discord within the group and in particular, that the new Taliban emir, Maulawi Haibatullah Akhundzada, has failed to exert his authority.
