Afghan prisoners exchange postponed

KABUL (XINHUA) – The prisoners swap between the Afghan government and the Taleban, planned for yesterday, has been postponed as no Taleban delegation arrived in Kabul, spokesman for the National Security Council Javid Faisal said on his Twitter account.

The government and the Taleban side last Sunday held a video conference for the third time and the Taleban agreed to send a team to Kabul for further technical discussion, according to Faisal.

The Taleban delegation assisted by the International Committee of the Red Cross will be the guests of the Afghan government during its stay in the country.
