KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Loya Jirgainfo-icon’s decision on releasing the remaining militant prisoners has left the Talibaninfo-icon with no excuse for delaying intra-Afghan peace negotiations, the grand assembly chairman said on Sunday.

Dr. Abdullah, who welcomed the grand tribal assembly’s resolution issued on day three, believed the government and the Taliban were "on the verge" of long-awaited peace parleys.

After three days of deliberations, the Loya Jirga, featuring thousands of delegates, approved the release of the 400 Taliban prisoners the government was reluctant to free.

Abdullah hailed the jirgainfo-icon’s decision as a historic move, promising the recommendation of the assembly would be implemented.

"The decision has removed the last excuse and obstacle to the start of peace negotiations,” remarked Abdullah, who also heads the High Council for National Reconciliation.
