KABUL (AFP) - Afghan President Hamid Karzai is set to announce a new scheme for forging peace with the Taliban and other militants fighting to topple his government, his spokesman said Sunday. The plan would be announced ahead of a key international conference set for London on January 28 at which the countrys security and development will be discussed, said Waheed Omar. Conceding that past efforts at peace have failed, Omar said the new plan would include economic incentives, as many men carrying guns for the Taliban do so for cash rather than ideology. The scheme we are proposing this time is taking all those into consideration and learning from the past and trying to come up with a proper programme where we have all the necessary ground to allow those joining the programme to have a peaceful life, he said. Omar said the reintegration programme would reach out to all ranks, from the political leadership to fighters on the ground.
