MOSCOW - Russia has agreed to postpone planned multilateral Afghan peace talks in Moscow that were to include the Taliban following a request by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Monday.

Russia had invited 12 countries and the Taliban to Moscow for the talks on Sept. 4. But though the Taliban had accepted the invitation, the Kabul government turned it down on the grounds that peace talks with the insurgent group must be led by Afghanistan.
