UAE mediation to free Pakistani prisoners in Afghanistan

posted on 21/11/2002: 505 views


Islamabad - Acting on the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Ali Mohammed Al Shamsi, the UAE Ambassador to Pakistan and also the non-resident ambassador to Afghanistan, met with Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai, who promptly agreed to the release of Pakistani prisoners not wanted in any cases. The release comes in response to the generous initiative by Sheikh Zayed in appreciation of his efforts to bridge the gap between the neighbouring countries of Pakistan and Afghanistan.



On his return from Kabul, the UAE Ambassador told WAM that the release will include all prisoners not wanted by the Afghanistan government and who are detained in the government central prisons in Kabul, Panjsher Valley north of Afghanistan, as well as those detained by the rulers of Herat and Mazar-e-Sharif. He added that the release of detainees will start in phases with effect from Thursday, and will include 249 Pakistani prisoners. Karzai lauded the wise policy of Sheikh Zayed and said that the he deserves to be called the "wise man of the Islamic nation." The initiative comes in the wake of mediation carried out by the UAE with the Pakistani leadership recently, which resulted in the release of 650 Afghan prisoners from Pakistani jails in June this year.
