Taliban: Holding a Loya Jirga has no legal legitimacy and is not acceptable to us
The Taliban issued a statement in the latest case regarding the government holding a Loya Jirga to release the remaining 400 prisoners, and the Loya Jirga does not consider it legitimate.
Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid issued a statement saying: “The Kabul administration is calling for a so-called Loya Jirga under the pretext of the fate of 400 prisoners, and it may be against the peace and hopes of the people.”
Afghanistan should be used more, so wanting such a jirga before a general peace and political agreement cannot represent the Colt nor has any legal status because the Kabul administration is not legal.
The statement said the Taliban were not satisfied with holding the Loya Jirga.
On the other hand, the Office of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) says that Deborah Lyons, Special Envoy of the UN Secretary-General for Afghanistan, spoke with Mullah Baradar, the Taliban’s political deputy, about finalizing the prisoner issue and starting talks. Peace has spoken.
The government has so far released 4,600 Taliban prisoners from the country’s prisons and is holding consultations for the release of another 400 Loya Jirga, and President Ghani has said it is not within his authority to release another 400 Taliban prisoners.
