Mullah Omer willing to talk peace

Express April 18, 2010

Taliban leader Mullah Mohammad Omar indicated on Sunday that he and his followers are warming up to the idea of holding peace talks with western politicians.

Two of the group's senior scholars gave an interview to the Sunday Times deep inside a Taliban controled territory.

The scholars said that Mullah Omer is not vying to control Afghanistan any more, but instead is prepared to engage in sincere and honest talks.

It was revealed that the group's campaign was down to three objectives that is, the return of Shariah law, expulsion of foreigners and restoration of security.

The 2 leaders also insisted that the reports of contact between the Taliban and Kabul government were a fraud.
