Afghanistan wants citizens in Guantanamo handed over

World Bulletin/News Desk

The President of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai called on the US government in Washington to hand over the Afghan prisoners in Guantanamo to Afghanistan.

In a written statement released by the presidential palace, President Karzai said that he welcomed US President Barack Obama's statement to close Guantanamo and underlined that all Afghan citizens there should be handed over to the administration in Kabul as soon as possible.

US President Obama promised during his first and second election to close Guantanamo, but could not realize his aim so far.

Anyone know where I can find the written statement that was released? I have searched the president's website, I can't seem to find it. Any help would be great.
