According to him, the group has given all their small arms to the security forces. “Despite the fact that the militants participated actively in the attacks, we’re not going to charge them,” he added. “I’m sure this will have positive impact on the situation in the region and will urge other radicals to return to peaceful life.”

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported that earlier a dozen more Taliban members surrendered in the northeast Afghanistan. The movement leaders give no comments on the reasons for their members switching to the government side.

The government announcements on the extremists giving up armed struggle come amid the “peace process” announced by the new president Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai which implies the activation of negotiations between the government and its Taliban opponents and other extremist organizations.

In accordance with the plan the radicals are guaranteed immunity from criminal prosecution in exchange for refusal to continue the armed struggle.
