Senior Afghan Taliban leader to be released

Video Preview

Pakistan said Tuesday that it would free senior Taliban leader Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar in order to help neighboring Afghanistan in its peace efforts.

"In principle, we have agreed to release him. The timing is being discussed. It should be very soon ... I think within this month," Sartaj Aziz, Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's adviser on foreign affairs, told Reuters.

Aziz also said that Baradar would be released into Pakistan and would not be handed over to Afghanistan directly.

President Hamid Karzai agreed to the idea of allowing those Taliban prisoners who have been freed the chance to contact their group's leaders still on the ground in order to persuade them to participate in peace talks.
