UN in talks with Afghan Taliban to reduce casualties

The United Nations has been talking to the Afghan Taliban on measures to limit the impact of the conflict on civilians, as it recorded the highest ever number of civilians killed and injured in Afghanistan in 2014.

UN’s top official Nicholas Haysom told reporters here on Friday that the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan is continuing discussions with all parties, including the Taliban, to strengthen mitigating measures to limit the impact of the conflict on civilians. “It is really important to engage all parties to the conflict on the question of civilian casualties...We have more recently engaged with the Taliban,” he said.
