KABUL: The Afghan Taliban have offered a three-month ceasefire in exchange for the release of prisoners.
According to sources, the Taliban have offered the Afghan government a three-month ceasefire in exchange for the release of Taliban prisoners in jails.
Nadir Naderi, a spokesman for the Afghan government in peace talks with the Taliban, told reporters that the Taliban had demanded the release of about 7,000 prisoners and that key Taliban leaders should be removed from the UN blacklist. This is a huge demand.
It should be noted that after the withdrawal of US and coalition forces in Afghanistan, the Taliban have gained control of several districts by pushing back the Afghan forces.
In addition, the Taliban are rapidly occupying the Afghan borders while gaining control of several cities. Intense clashes continue between the Taliban and Afghan forces.
