NATO chief urges Afghan govt, Taliban to step up peace talks

BRUSSELS (AP) – NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg on Thursday urged the Afghan government and the Taliban to step up the pace of peace talks amid doubts over whether the military alliance will pull thousands of troops out of the country by a May deadline.
