Afghan President Hamid Karzai meets a top U.S. envoy for a second day Sunday to discuss ways to end bloodshed and achieve a peaceful resolution to Afghanistan's conflict.
Marc Grossman, the U.S. special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, also met with Karzai on Saturday.
During the meeting, the president made clear that Afghans should be in the driver's seat in finding a solution, saying the government and its peace council are making every effort to bring an end to the bloodshed.
Karzai recently met with the party of warlord Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, head of the militant Hizb-i-Islami group.
The meeting with Hekmatyar served as a signal from Karzai to the United States that peace talks encompass other radical groups besides the Taliban.FULL STORY
