Kerry:Taliban office may be closed if peace talks stall

June 22, 2013 17:14

DOHA - US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Saturday he hoped proposed US talks with the Taliban are put back on track after this week's delays, and warned that a recently opened Taliban office in Qatar may have to close if peace talks do not proceed.

"We need to see if we can get back on track," Kerry told a news conference. "I don't know whether that's possible or not. If there is not a decision ... to move forward by the Taliban in short order, then we may have to consider whether or not the office has to be closed," he said.
