The High Council for National Reconciliation (HCNC) says the prisoner’s exchange between the Afghan government and the Taliban is set to be completed today and an Afghan government delegation will travel to Doha tomorrow.

Fraidoon Khwazoon, a spokesman to the council told Khaama Press, that all the remaining Taliban prisoners will be released by the Afghan government today, and a delegation from the Afghan government is scheduled to travel to Doha by tonight or tomorrow morning.

Khwazoon did not share further details about the prisoner’s release process, but early sources have told media that the Afghan government has so far released 200 Taliban in the past few days, and 4 Afghan National Commandos have been freed by the Taliban.

According to reports, the Afghan government and Taliban had agreed upon the release of 50 Taliban in exchange for one Afghan commando.

Sources also pointed at around 180 remaining Taliban detainees who will be released by today, but some other sources have indicated, the release of 100 Taliban detainees, which will include freedom of 2 other commandos from the Taliban side will happen today.

Delays in the bilateral prisoner’s release process were cited as the biggest obstacle in Intra-Afghan Talks to begin.
