    Islamabad: Pakistan has planned to release all Afghan Taliban prisoners who are still in its detention, including the group’s former second-in-command, an official has said.

    Jalil Jilani, Pakistan’s foreign secretary, the foreign ministry’s top bureaucrat, told a news conference in Abu Dhabi that they were coordinating the remaining detainees and will be released subsequently. According to the Daily Times, asked if the former Taliban deputy leader, Mullah Baradar, would be among those released, he said that ‘the aim is to release all.

    Jilani was speaking after meeting the acting US special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, David Pearce, and Afghan Deputy Foreign Minister Jawed Luddin at the Afghan embassy in Abu Dhabi, the report said. Luddin told reporters that the purpose of the meeting was to discuss ‘security and political dimensions of bilateral relationships’ between the three countries.

    Regional power Pakistan is seen as critical to the success of US and Afghan efforts to bring stability in Afghanistan, a task gaining urgency as the end of the US combat mission in 2014 draws closer, the report said.


    Afghanistan has been pressurizing Pakistan to free Taliban members who could help promote its tentative reconciliation efforts.

    According to the report, Luddin said the peace process had gained momentum in recent weeks with the release of some Taliban detainees by Pakistan, preparations by the Afghan Taliban movement to open a political office in Doha, and Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s visit to Washington.

    My sense would be that Pakistan would be getting much better leverage so the release.

    Shinde is getting ready to welcome Shri taliban at the wagha border accompanied by Mani Shankar Aiyar and Digvijay Singh.

    Who knows our Talibans "friends" can be granted asylum by UPA government :)

    It is all hogwash. You can't talk to animals. A more hardline government is expected to come into power in April 2014 and i see the war picking up.

    When 3000 americans are murdered in cold blood, afganstan is lucky like Pakistan they are not a nuclear waste land. We have killed Osama bin Laden, lot of Taliban and Al Quade and have given Afganstan a chance to become a decent country, we never went there to stay, we did not take them on to raise. I expect they will blow it like Pakistan, the USA and the world does not come close to understand that over a 1000 years of inbreeding has caused for the offspring of consanguineous marriages are unpleasantly clear: Death, low intelligence or even mental retardation, handicaps and diseases often leading to a slow and painful death. Other consequences are:

    Limited social skills and understanding, limited ability to manage education and work procedures and painful treatment procedures. The negative cognitive consequences also influence the executive functions. The impairment of concentration and emotional control most often leads to anti-social behavior.


    Muslim Inbreeding: Impacts on intelligence, sanity, health and society

    They estimate in another 1500 years there will have to be some subhuman classification for the people in that part of the world.

    seems PA has run out of good man to join its ranks and has lost control over Pakistan so they want to use these Taliban now to retain hold over Pakistan and create problems after americans leave. Chinese are going to invest a lot of money in securing oil fields in Afgan so they wud want PA help in maintaining hold over those areas.
