State Department reports often describe long-standing issues of leadership, political conditions, and highly privileged conversations.

Security Council meeting, Tanin asked the sanctions committee to consider removing other names submitted by Afghan President Karzai's government. This is a significant effort to create an atmosphere favorable to talks with the Taliban. It might not work, but it is noteworthy.
