Afghan government officials held a videoconference on Sunday with Taliban delegates to discuss technical details of a prisoner release that is a part of the peace deal signed last month.
The first announcement about the video conference came from US special envoy Zalmay Khalilzad in a series of Twitter posts, saying: “Today, the US and Qatar facilitated the first Afghan government to Taliban technical talks on prisoner releases, via Skype video conferencing.”
A number of political and civil society figures on Monday raised concerns over the government’s measures against COVID-19 in the country.
They warn that if the coronavirus fight is exploited politically, the country will face very bad consequences.
