KABUL/ISLAMABAD - Afghan officials have held secret talks with the Taliban's former second in command who is in detention in Pakistan in a move which could help rekindle stalled peace talks with the insurgents, according to senior officials from both countries.

Afghan officials have often seen Pakistan as a reluctant partner in attempts to broker talks with the Taliban but its move to grant access to Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar may signal Islamabad's willingness to play a more active role.
