29 May 2020 Salam Watandar

KABUL (SW) - The National Security Council said in a statement that the détente that started during Eid ul-Fitr continues despite reports of scattered incidents to the contrary.

''A ceasefire is a complex operational undertaking that requires significant and ongoing coordination to avoid incidents. Those efforts will continue'', it said.

 

Meanwhile, both the government and the Taliban have also resumed technical talks for the stalled prisoners swap process.

 

The NSC spokesman Javed Faisal said these talks resumed on Thursday. "A technical delegation of the Taliban is in Kabul to work with a technical team of the government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan on the release of prisoners of both sides", he said.

The Taliban announced the three-day truce on Eid-ul-Fitr (Sunday May 24 till Thursday May 27), which was reciprocated by the government.
