Mattis says peace talks with the Taliban are underway

“Secretary of Defense James Mattis said Tuesday that peace talks are underway to end the 17-year-old war in Afghanistan. ‘It is still early in that reconciliation process. I will have to give you an update to date as it matures,’ Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon on Tuesday. Mattis faced questions about the peace talks after recent reports of a secretive meeting in Qatar between a member of the U.S. State Department and the Taliban.”
