Taliban Rejects Obama's Call For Dialogue

In a statement bearing the signature of the group's spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid, the Taliban insisted it would not engage in any talks with any parties before the withdrawal of occupation forces from Afghanistan.

Mujahid said in the statement "there were no moderate or extremist clans within the Taliban…there is a general consensus amongst all groups who are all united under Mullah Omar's leadership."
