Officials at the Consulate of Afghanistan in Karachi have confirmed the release of 19 Afghan nationals from Pakistani prisons.

Abdul Jabbar Takhari, the Consul-General of the Taliban in Karachi, stated that approximately 19 Afghan prisoners were freed on Tuesday, January 31st.

This diplomatic authority from the Taliban Consulate added that the released prisoners were freed as a result of efforts made by the Consulate from various jails in Sindh province.

Mr. Takhari emphasized that the recently released prisoners returned to their country through the Chaman border, and efforts to secure the release of more Afghan prisoners in Pakistan are ongoing.

This comes at a time when Afghan citizens in Pakistan have previously been detained and subsequently expelled from the country for various reasons by Pakistani authorities.

Pakistani officials have repeatedly emphasized that the primary reason for the detention of Afghan migrants in their country is the lack of legal documentation for residency.

The release of these 19 Afghan prisoners represents a positive development in the ongoing diplomatic efforts between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
