Afghan President Hamid Karzai told a global meeting Thursday that he will soon convene a peace conference in his country to lure Taliban fighters to renounce violence but he still expects foreign troops to stay for up to a decade.

Karzai called on delegates from about 70 nations and world bodies to support a plan to reintegrate Taliban soldiers into mainstream society with offers of housing and jobs in the police, army, or in agriculture.
