Hamid Karzai, the Afghan president, has been talking peace with former allies of the Taliban. 

It is his first confirmed direct contact in Kabul with the Hezb-i-Islami, one of three main groups fighting the government.

The fighters have handed him a 15-point peace plan, which includes demands for the withdrawal of international troops.
