Germany Pledges Millions for Taliban
Germany's foreign ministry says it has signed an agreement with Afghanistan to give 14 million dollars to Taliban militants, who choose to lay down their arms, every year.
Berlin says the contract will be valid for five years and the cash will only be paid to militants who lay down their weapons.
German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said on Wednesday that reintegrating former militants into the Afghan social and political fabric is crucial to stabilizing Afghanistan, DPA reported.'
