Afghan government says Taliban must accept a ceasefire ahead of any peace talks.

A spokesman for Presidential Palace, Sediq Sediqqi said we cannot reach a long-lasting peace without a ceasefire as a reduction of violence is not practical.

Earlier, NATO's Senior Civilian Representative for Afghanistan Nicholas Kay expressed hope that peace talks between US and Taliban will move forward and pave the way for intra-Afghan talks.
