By Paul Johnson

( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) - The Taliban is suspending talks with the United States to exchange army sergeant Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban prisoners.
Bergdahl is the only American soldier the Taliban is holding captive.
Early last week, a u-s official told CNN American diplomats had been carrying out quote: "extremely sensitive discussions" with Taliban intermediaries.
Today, a Taliban spokesman issued a statement saying the group called for the talks to be suspended because of the "current complex political situation in the country."
The spokesman didn't say what that situation is.
Bergdahl has been held by insurgents in Pakistan since 2009.
