UAE mediates release of Pakistanis

posted on 19/11/2002: 550 views


The UAE government has mediated the release of 249 Pakistanis imprisoned in Afghanistan. The prisoners will be set free in phases from Thursday. The mediation was initiated by President His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who ordered Ali Mohammed Al Shamsi, the UAE Ambassador to Pakistan and also the non-resident ambassador to Afghanistan to mediate with Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the release of the prisoners.



Following his return last evening from Afghanistan, the ambassador told WAM that the release will include all prisoners not wanted by the Afghanistan government and who are imprisoned in Kabul, Panjsher Valley, Herat and Mazar-e-Sharif. The Afghan president lauded the wise policy of Sheikh Zayed. This mediation comes on the heels of another by the UAE for the release of 650 Afghan prisoners in Pakistani prisons last June.
