President Karzai who is on an official visit to Ankara, the capital city of Turkey, told reporters that the release of prisoners was of no concern to the US.

Karzai also added that he was hoping that the US will stop harassing the judiciary authority of Afghanistan.

The Afghan government released 65 of the 88 detainees from Bagram prison on Thursday, despite the US objections.

US Embassy in capital Kabul following a statement said that the release of prisoners from Parwan Detention Facility is deeply regrettable.

The Embassy following a statement said that among those released today are individuals who are responsible for, or contributed to, the deaths of Afghan security force personnel, Afghan civilians, and American and other coalition personnel.

US Forces in Afghanistan (USFOR-A) also condemned the release of the prisoners from Parwan Detention Facility.

USFOR-A following a statement, said, “The release of these dangerous individuals poses a threat to U.S., coalition and Afghan National Security Forces, as well as the Afghan population. Insurgents in the group released today have killed coalition and Afghan forces.”

The released detainees were also accused of killing Afghan men, women and children. “More than two dozen of the individuals released were linked to the production or emplacement of improvised explosive devices, the number one killer of Afghan civilians,” USFOR-A said in its statement.
