ENNISKILLEN, Northern Ireland (AP) - It won't be quick, and it won't be easy.
That's President Barack Obama's assessment of the upcoming talks between the United States and the Taliban, aimed at finding a political solution after nearly 12 years of war in Afghanistan.
The Taliban met a key U.S. demand by pledging not to use Afghanistan as a base from which to threaten other countries. The Americans say the Taliban must also denounce al-Qaida.
Obama says the opening of a Taliban political office in Qatar is an important first step toward reconciliation between the Taliban and Afghanistan's government.
