Obama supports Afghan-Taliban negotiations

WASHINGTON

However, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs reiterated that Taliban leaders must first renounce the use of violence and their support for Al-Qaida.

A Washington Post report out says: "Afghanistan president Hamid Karzai's government has made contact with senior Taliban officials based in Pakistan."

Gibbs says the president supports a reconciliation process, but it's up to afghan leaders to decide with whom to reconcile.
