Taliban reject Afghan offer to free 1,500 prisoners before talks

Taliban reject Afghan offer to free 1,500 prisoners before talksThe Taliban rejected the Afghan government’s attempt to resolve a spiralling crisis over the release of insurgent prisoners Wednesday, as Kabul warned it was ready to resume offensive battlefield operations. The decree issued earlier by President Ashraf Ghani had raised hopes that Kabul’s offer to free 1,500 insurgents as a “gesture of goodwill” before talks begin, would prompt the Taliban to come to the negotiating table. Any changes amounted to “a violation” of the deal struck between the insurgents and Washington in Doha last month, he added.
