A Taliban spokesman on Wednesday dismissed the outcome of a conference in London between the leaders of Afghanistan, Pakistan and Britain which aimed to work towards a peace deal within six months.

The conference and other "horse trading" were "the real obstacles of effective and fruitful negotiations between the factual sides," Zabihullah Mujahid wrote on the Islamists' website.
