ISLAMABAD - The Haqqani network, one of the most feared insurgent groups in Afghanistan, would take part in peace talks with the Kabul government and the United States only if the Taliban did, its leader Sirajuddin Haqqani told Reuters on Saturday.

Sirajuddin said the group had rejected several peace gestures from the United States and President Hamid Karzai's government in the past because they were an attempt to "create divisions" between militant groups, and any further attempts to do so would fail.

The Haqqani group no longer has sanctuaries in Pakistan, and felt secure inside Afghanistan, he said in a telephone interview from an undisclosed location.
