KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Consultative Loya Jirgainfo-icon (CLJ) chairman Abdullah Abdullah on Saturday said no committee of the ongoing jirgainfo-icon had opposed the release of 400 Talibaninfo-icon prisoners but demanded their conditional release.

Addressing reporters here, Abdullah said there was no contradiction over the release of Taliban prisoners within the committees, adding that generally no committee opposed their release.

Without going into more detail, he said: “Majority of the committees have demanded conditional release of Taliban prisoners.”

He said the CLJ decision will be announced tomorrow (Sunday) and that after the release of Taliban prisoners, intra-Afghan talks would begin in three days in Doha.

He hoped the Taliban will not come with more conditions and if something like this happened, the people of Afghanistaninfo-icon will take their decision.

The CLJ head rejected the release of any foreign terrorist, saying: “There is no foreigner in these 400 prisoners.”

He said matters related to individual rights were vital and the CLJ offered their suggestions in this regard.

Abdullah said there was consensus on CLJ, but some key political parties leaders were missing and only their representatives were present.
