LONDON (AFP) - Talks aimed at bringing about peace in Afghanistan must be all-inclusive to succeed, the top UN official to the country said in comments published here Sunday. If you engage partially, you will have partial results, Kai Eide, head of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), said in an interview with The Sunday Times. We have to have a political process that is all-inclusive. Thats the only way to bring this conflict to an end, he stated, adding If you want important results, you need to talk to people who are important. We wont get where we want by negotiating with local commanders on the ground. Thats an inadequate peace process and that wont work. Our Monitoring Desk adds: Eide warned said talks with the Taliban must include the movements leadership or they will not result in peace, as differences emerge within the international community about a strategy to end the eight-year war. His views contrast with those of British Foreign Secretary David Miliband who called last week for talks with local Taliban commanders and what he referred to as second or third tier Taliban or moderate Taliban. Many believe there is no real point in negotiating with anyone other than Mullah Omar and his ruling council, the Quetta shura. If you engage partially you will have partial results. We have to have a political process that is all-inclusive. Thats the only way to bring this conflict to an end, said Eide. John Butt, the Muslim chaplain at Cambridge University, who runs radio stations in Pakistan and Afghanistan aimed at spreading a message of peace, concurred. It is pointless talking to anyone but Mullah Omar if you want this war to end, he said. Alternatives to more soldiers on the ground are also being canvassed. Under a new British plan to use village power, former Taliban fighters would be retrained and offered work. According to The Times, with cash already promised by Japan, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia and a secret experiment under way in three provinces, the programme aims to let governors deal directly with local Taliban commanders and give them a way out of the fighting, if they want it. This may involve cash for job creation and training. According to diplomats and senior military officials on both sides of the Atlantic, the Miliband initiative put to US leaders in Washington last week represents an implicit challenge to the idea that the war can be won by flooding the country with tens of thousands more troops, foreign and Afghan. One senior source said direct talks with Taliban leaders such as Mullah Omar were not ruled out. However, the key to success, according to the UK plan, would be undermining the rebellion at a local level and not primarily by military means. Eide told reporters gathered in Kabul that he gave the Sunday Times interview before Milibands speech, but said his approach is more comprehensive than that you see from some others. What I have said is if you want relevant results, you have to talk to the relevant people. If you want to have important results, you have to talk to the people who are important, the Norwegian diplomat added.
