In a new development from the war-torn country of Afghanistan, the government decided to go against the earlier decision made during the Loya Jirga meeting. According to Government spokesman Sediq Sediqqi “We are going to release them. That’s not an issue. But it has to be two-way. If we take this bold step, releasing all these guys, all these bad people, why are the Taliban not releasing our captives, which is a very small number.” Meanwhile, the Taliban’s political spokesperson said, that the group has fulfilled its responsibility to release all security personnel previously under our custody.
The historic deal with the Taliban is aimed at ending the US decade long war in Afghanistan. However, U.S. troops have already begun leaving, and there is expected to fewer than 5,000 troops in a country by the month of November.
