We haven't made any decisions and it's no surprise to any of you that this is an issue in the Unites States of law. First of all we have to meet the requirements of our law.
I am looking forward to the Taliban being clear about breaking ties with international terrorism, denouncing it, distancing themselves from it, and also to say that they are prepared to participate in an Afghan peace process where Afghans talk to Afghans about the future of Afghanistan.
