Our shared goal is to open the door for Afghans to sit down with other Afghans to talk about the future of their country. For us, we've been very clear and we've been very consistent about what the necessary outcomes of such a peace process would include. That the Taliban and other insurgents break their ties with al Qaida, renounce violence and abide by Afghanistan's constitution, very crucially the protection of women and minority rights.
