Afghan President Ashraf Ghani pledged Monday to issue a decree on the release of Taliban prisoners Tuesday. The President also said that on the same day the negotiating team will be finalised.
The release of up to 5,000 Taliban prisoners from the government's custody is part of the US-Taliban peace agreement that is intended to open the way for intra-Afghan negotiations, for which Ghani's administration must announce a negotiating team.
"This negotiating team has been finalised after consultations with influential figures, members of the civil society, women, youths and representatives of the ulema and different levels of people," Ghani added.
