Kabul - A spokesman for the Afghan Taliban said on Thursday that a video showing what appear to be US forces in Afghanistan urinating on the bodies of dead Taliban fighters will not affect efforts to broker peace talks.

"This is not a political process, so the video will not harm our talks and prisoner exchange because they are at the preliminary stage," said spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid.
