President Omar al-Bashir launched talks in Khartoum Saturday on Sudan's ailing economy and the insurgencies in its border regions, despite a boycott by mainstream opposition and rebel groups.Most groups boycotted Saturday's conference, calling instead for a meeting abroad to agree on terms for talks, but Bashir said they could still join.Last month, Bashir issued a decree declaring a two-month ceasefire and pardoning any rebel leaders who attend the talks.But the Sudan People's Liberation Movement-North, which has been battling government forces in South Kordofan and Blue Nile states, and the main Darfur rebel groups did not respond.The talks are aimed at finding a solution to the country's ailing economy and the conflicts in Darfur, Blue Nile and South Kordofan.
