President Karzai_aAfghan president Hamid Karzai once again urged United States of America to transfer Afghan detainees from Guantanamo prison to Afghanistan.

Presidential palace spokesman Aimal Faizi on Sunday said president Hamid Karzai welcomed his US counterpart president Barack Obama’s efforts to close Guantanamo prison.

President Karzai during his visit to United States of America earlier this year also urged US officials to hand over Afghan detainees in Guantanamo prison to Afghanistan.

Aimal Faizi said president Hamid Karzai has once again insisted to consider Afghanistan’s demand in this regard.

President Obama reiterated his commitment in a counterterrorism speech last week and outlined steps he would take to close the US military prison at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.

Obama also urged US congress to end ban on transfer of inmates from Guantanamo prison.

In the meantime Aimal Faizi said that president Karzai is expecting that the US congress lift ban on transfer of inmates from Guantanamo to their homeland.
