US President George W. Bush said he had nothing to talk about with the Taliban regime in Afghanistan. There are no talks between the USA and the Taliban, that's all, said Bush who has returned to the White House after the weekend in his country residence in Camp David (Maryland). According to the US President, if the Taliban wants that the American military operation in Afghanistan be stopped it must meet the USA's conditions, including the extradition of Osama bin Laden and the leaders of his terrorist organisation al-Qaida; apart from that, the Taliban regime must destroy all terrorist-training camps in Afghanistan and release all foreign hostages. If they want us to stop the military operation they must meet all my conditions, said George W. Bush.
The Americans came to realise that they would have to either leave the region or weaken their presence there. It is Russia that is filling the vacuum now
