Kabul (BNA) Our prideful Afghanistan has been suffering moral and material losses for the last 34 years when coup d’états and revolutions had started in the country. 
Though in this period the brave people of the country bravely stood against the varying invasions and give sacrifices, however in every instance the intensity of world and regional plots prevented them to feel the outcome of their strivings. 
The killing of the sons of this homeland, destruction of infrastructures and even endangering of national sovereignty of the government of Afghanistan were miseries that overwhelmed this people. 
From the creation of the interim government too date. Afghanistan continually and tirelessly tried to reconstruct the destructions and to treat the wounds of the people. 
The presence of Afghanistan of Afghanistan at the international arena for the second time and verification of its national sovereignty was a priority of the government in the past ten years. 
Today we are taking another big political step towards restoration of the sovereignty of the government of Afghanistan and this is full transition of the Bagram prison and its administration by the US forces to the government of Afghanistan. 
With the transition of Bagram prison to the government sovereignty, an end has been put to the foreign prisons on the Afghan territories. 
The Bagram prison has been an ugly phenomenon that is the product of terrorist activities in Afghanistan. 
Hereafter the Bagram prison has been turned into an ordinary captivity site of Afghanistan and the alien will be freed from it and the criminals will remain in it to witness their punishment as per the enforced laws of Afghanistan. 
I consider transition of the Bagram prison to the government of Afghanistan as a victory for the nation and a big step towards verification of the national sovereignty of the government. 
While I am congratulating the countrymen on this occasion, I thank all the administrations and foundations having strived in this respect and succeeded in their efforts. 
I assign all the judicial organs to accelerate addressing the pending files of the prisoners. I want to point to an important issue that all the employees and the in charges of the prison should strictly observe human rights and Islamic rites in approaching with the prisoners.
