WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton expects there will be some reconciliation between those fighting in Afghanistan, but she said she doubts that some U.S. foes will be willing to set aside differences.

Mrs. Clinton told NBC’s “Meet The Press” in an interview aired Sunday that she has doubts whether Taliban leader Mullah Omar will say he’s giving up his ties to al Qaeda.

But Mrs. Clinton said she is not resigned to the Taliban being a part of the Afghan government in the future. She said she doesn’t know of any conflict in recent times that didn’t have some political resolution.

Mrs. Clinton said she thinks there are leaders within the Taliban who have come over to the other side, but she said they have to renounce al Qaeda and violence.
