Afghan President Ashraf Ghani offered recognition of the Taliban as a legitimate political group Wednesday as part of a proposed political process that he said could lead to talks aimed at ending more than 16 years of war.There was no immediate response to Ghani's offer although one Taliban official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said it was being studied by senior Taliban leaders.In return for Ghani's offer, the Taliban would have to recognize the Afghan government and respect the rule of law, including the rights of women, one of the priorities for Afghanistan's international partners.
