Afghan talks heading for a deadlock

Even as rival Afghan groups were locked in intense negotiations on Saturday in Bonn to hammer out an agreement, UN officials and diplomats appeared pessimistic about any agreement being reached anytime soon by the rival groups.

Speaking to a news agency, Ahmad Fawzi, the spokesman for UN special representative Lakhdar Brahimi said, "The talks are continuing."

"There is nothing more I can say at this point. I don't think I'll have anything more to say in the morning. Maybe later in the day (Saturday)," he was quoted as saying.

Fawzi had earlier appeared optimistic about the various Afghan groups reaching an agreement by Friday afternoon, and wrap up the negotiations on Saturday with a comprehensive agreement.

Some reports suggested that the Northern Alliance was holding up the negotiations by waiting for its nominees to the 120-200 member supreme council to be approved by its leadership in Kabul.
