KABUL were still not willing to accept peace and remained committed to war as they provided no plan for truce so far.

Javid Faisal, NSC spokesman, told a press conference here that Taliban militants had no plan for peace process and accused them of violating the peace agreement.

He said the Afghan government had so far released 1,000 Taliban prisoners but the group freed only 171, including 105 security forces so far.

He said of the 105 released prisoners, 45 were not included in their list and had been arrested after the peace pact between the US and the Taliban was signed in Qatar few months back.

He noted it was said that 200 military personnel would be released in return for the release of 1000 Taliban prisoners but it did not take place.

He said so far 160 military prisoners were missing so their identity should first released, adding if the Taliban had killed such number of military men, then it was war crime and they should answer to the people of Afghanistan and to the international community in this regard.

Faisal called on the Taliban to avoid arresting civilians and release all those currently in their dentation.

He said, “If the Taliban are not committed to the peace agreement, then the Afghan government would also not implement the peace pact as it is not a party to the agreement and the peace implementation would be referred to the US.”
