Afghanistan tightens security ahead of four-nation talks

Kabul, Feb 23 (IANS) The Afghan government has beefed up security measures ahead of the four-nation Afghanistan peace talks expected to open here on Tuesday.

The fourth round of the key four-nation talks to open in Kabul will include Afghanistan, Pakistan, China and the US, Xinhua reported.

The nations planned to work out a roadmap for bringing Taliban to the negotiations table to settle the lingering crisis.

Afghan officials are hopeful that the fourth round of the four-nation talks could set a date for holding direct dialogue between the Afghan government and Taliban militants.

The hardliner Taliban militants, however, have yet to indicate any willingness to join the peace talks.
