Make peace, Taliban told

 

UNITED NATIONS: As Afghans await the results of a presidential election roiled by Taliban threats, the government used its platform at the United Nations (UN) General Assembly on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) to tell the insurgents: “Join us in peace, or we will continue to fight.” Afghanistan was not the only country sending a message: North Korea had one for the United States, saying it was up to Washington whether now-stalled nuclear negotiations “become a window of opportunity or an occasion that will hasten the crisis.” And even in the final hour of this year’s UN gathering of world leaders, Iran and Saudi Arabia traded barbs sharpened by a recent missile and drone strike on major Saudi oil facilities.
