The Taliban this morning says it is suspending dialogue with the U.S. The announcement comes days after an American soldier allegedly killed 16 Afghan civilians. Correspondent for our partner the BBC Bilal Sarwary discusses this statement as well as Afghan President Hamid Karzai's demands that NATO troops pull back to major bases and accelerate Afghan responsibility for safeguarding the country.
