Afghans Agree to Release Taliban Prisoners to Advance Talks


The Afghan government agreed late Tuesday to release 1,500 Taliban prisoners as a gesture of goodwill before starting talks with the insurgent group, putting the commitment in the form of a decree, a spokesman said.

The U.S. signed a deal with the Taliban last month to withdraw all troops within 14 months on the condition the group commit to breaking ties with terrorists and starting talks with the Afghan government and other parties.
