intra-afghan dialogue: The Beijing talks, which were to be held next week, were postponed, according to officials familiar with the talks, according to CTV. Speaking on condition they not be identified because of the sensitivity of the talks, they said the postponement would be brief but no new date was given. The day-long talks in Moscow came ahead of an intra-Afghan dialogue to be hosted by China. When the China talks take place, they will be the first face-to-face discussions between Afghanistan's warring sides since July. There has been no official announcement of a postponement, but previous intra-Afghan talks have been delayed while both sides squabbled over participants. Even President Ashraf Ghani, who has objected to any talks not led by his government, said late Friday that he would send representatives. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
