Kabul (BNA) Amid efforts for peace in Afghanistan, president Ghani says that for the peace process to progress, the fate of the prisoners of the security and defense forces must be clarified.
“The reason why the process of releasing Taliban’s prisoners is moving forward is because I want the fate of every prisoner of the Afghan security and defense forces to be clear.
The peace process will not go on until the fate of our heroes is clarified,” president Ghani said during his visit to Ghazni province on Thursday.
