A conference of religious scholars (Ulema) from Afghanistan and Pakistan will take place in Kabul on March 10, a spokesman for the Pakistani foreign office said on Thursday.

During the foreign office’s weekly briefing in Islamabad, spokesman Moazzam Ali Khan said both countries had principally agreed to hold the Ulema conference in Kabul on March 10.

Khan said that the objective of the summit is to move forward with the peace and reconciliation process in Afghanistan.

A delegation of Afghan ulema had traveled to Pakistan earlier this week to finalise plans for the Kabul conference meant to denounce suicide attacks and other forms of violence in the name of Islam.

However, the meeting was boycotted by a majority of Pakistani scholars after a dispute over whether to invite the Afghan Taliban in the Kabul conference.

During his briefing, Khan said that Pakistan has so far released 28 Afghan Taliban prisoners previously held under its detention.
