US says it won't attend "Troika Plus" talks on Afghanistan in Moscow, cites logistical issues
United States has said it will not attend the "Troika Plus" talks on the Afghanistan issue, that is going to be held in Moscow this week. "We will not participate in the Moscow talks. The Troika Plus has been an effective, constructive forum. We look forward to engaging in that forum going forward, but we’re not in a position to take part this week … It’s just logistically difficult for us to take part this week," Ned Price said.
