Regional powers have agreed to try to revive Afghanistan's stalled peace process after almost 40 years of conflict, the EU's foreign policy chief said Wednesday, as the West sought to raise some $13 billion to fund the country through 2020 .Hope was briefly raised in 2015 when Taliban officials met the Afghan government in neighboring Pakistan, but that process was short-lived, and the Taliban, under their second new leader in just over a year, insist that foreign forces must leave Afghanistan before peace talks can begin.U.S. and EU officials have been encouraged by a smaller peace agreement last month between the Afghan government and a local warlord.But Pakistan continues to harbor Afghan Taliban, according to the United States and India.
