NATO chief says alliance helping Taliban talks

NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen says the military alliance is helping the Taliban meet with the Afghan government.

Rasmussen says that when there are practical ways that the NATO alliance can help, it will. He did not give details, but a senior alliance official has said NATO is giving safe passage for Taliban figures to travel to Kabul for talks.

Rasmussen spoke at a press conference Thursday at NATO headquarters.
