The Afghan-Canadian governor of Kandahar said peace with the Taliban is possible, but it will take time, the Canadian Press reported. In an interview from his Kandahar city palace, Tooryalai Wesa said the international community has to be patient, as only time can fix the divisions between the insurgency and the Afghan government. He made these comments the same day Afghan President Hamid Karzai began four days of meetings in Washington to gather support for potential peace talks with the Taliban.
