Afghan Ambassador to Islamabad Shukrullah Atif Mashal on Tuesday said that Afghanistan and Pakistan had agreed to work out a mechanism for swapping prisoners, according to reports.

Addressing refugees in Islamabad, the Afghan ambassador said the prisoners’ issue had come under discussion during a recent visit of foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi to Kabul.

He said both sides had agreed on the exchange of prisoners, Dawn reported.

Mr Mashal said the Afghan embassy’s team would visit various prisons in Pakistan for identification of prisoners.

“Many prisoners arrested in pity nature offences in the two countries should be released,” he said.

The ambassador said a 10-member team of Afghan government would visit prisons in Pakistan to find out prisoners, who had either completed their jail terms or were granted bails but couldn’t be released.
