Karzai welcomes Taliban prisoners release

President Ghani announced to free 900 Taliban prisoners after the militants agreed a short-term cease fire during the Eid days.

Karzai said Wednesday in a statement that bringing a durable peace to the country is the wish of every Afghan.

He said that extension of the truce and prisoner swap could help for a trust building and would pave the ground for the intra-Afghan negotiations.
