Prime Minister Stephen Harper offered qualified support Friday for the negotiations underway between Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Taliban leaders toward a power-sharing peace agreement in Afghanistan.

Canada and its allies “have always supported attempts at reconciliation,” Mr. Harper told reporters during a press conference here with Swiss President Doris Leuthard.

However, “there are always important conditions” that must be met before Canada could endorse any agreement, he added.

Those conditions would include both the laying down of arms by the Taliban and its respect for the Afghan constitution, “including its human rights guarantees.” Those guarantees respect, among other things, the equal rights of women.

“Any agreement along those lines is something Canada would strongly support,” Mr. Harper concluded.

Although little public information is available, press reports suggest that NATO forces assisted four senior Taliban leaders, none of whom was Mullah Omar, the notorious former leader of Afghanistan, in travelling from Pakistan to the capital, Kabul. American negotiators are not part of the talks.

  1. I’m busting my ballot in the next Federal Election. What does it take to drive it home that ISLAMISTS HATE US and will lie over ANY “talks” of negotiation? Afghanistan will never obtain 21st century democracy. Harper is a fool. Just like Chretian was. Damned NATO..
