Kabul awaiting Taliban release of commando forces to free remaining 320 prisoners - Faisal

Kabul, Aug 31 (Sputnik) Kabul remains committed to its plan of releasing 320 Taliban prisoners, reportedly including three perpetrators of insider attacks against US troops in Afghanistan, on the condition that the militant group releases commando forces first, National Security Council Spokesman Javid Faisal told Sputnik Monday.
US media reported over the weekend that Kabul was ready to release three Taliban prisoners who were in prison for so-called green-on-blue attacks, in which militants infiltrate Afghan security forces to gain proximity to US troops and carry out deadly attacks. The Washington Post reported that Kabul had seen no significant pushback from the US presidential administration.
“There are no changes to the plan. The Taliban will have to release our commandos held by them before the government resumes the release of the remaining 320 Taliban prisoners. It’s now on the Taliban to take action and help the peace efforts produce the expected outcome,” Faisal told Sputnik in Kabul.
