According to local press reports, leaders agreed on seven conditions that would be presented if the West asked for talks. The source also said leaders want to open a dialogue with Washington before the government in Kabul joins. The authenticity of the overture as a Taliban action is not confirmed, and there are grounds to suspect it is not genuine, such as the omission of the usual condition that all foreign forces withdraw before negotiations can begin.

Singh also announced upgrades to army facilities there, plus the basing of 50,000 to 60,000 additional soldiers in two army divisions.

North Korean Cabinet Premier Choe Yong-rim is visiting northeastern China to step up joint economic projects, according to unnamed diplomatic sources.
