Thirty seven insurgents have surrendered to government forces and embraced the Afghan peace process, Isaf said on Monday.
The men who have renounced violence, were active against the government in eastern Kunar Province, Gen. Josef Blotz, Isaf spokesman told a press conference in Kabul on Monday.
"Just this week 37 former insurgents joined the peace process and reintegrated into Afghan society in the Ghaziabad District of Kunar," Mr Blotz said.
Kunar is a restive province bordered by Pakistan. Violence has recently increased in the province where militants have been carrying out attacks against Afghan and foreign forces.
The Afghan forces will undertake full security responsibilities by the end of 2014.
The US Defence Secretary Robert Gates has arrived in Kabul to visit his troops and to talk with Afghan officials about security transition.
The foreign forces have increased their military operations in different parts of the country to clear volatile regions of insurgents ahead of the gradual withdrawal of international troops scheduled to begin in July this year.
