In a tweet, Zalmay said the move is an important step in the peace process and the reduction of violence.

He urged both sides to accelerate efforts to meet targets of US-Taliban agreement because potential for COVID-19 outbreaks in prisons poses a real threat.”

The Afghan government and Taliban have released many detainees so far.

Government released prisoners from Bagram prison.

Both sides released prisoners under US Taliban deal.
