Afghan government says ceasefire is still in place in the country despite resumption of skirmishes with Taliban after Eid ul Fitr.

Spokesman for the Afghan National Security Advisor, Javid Faisal said there have been violations of the ceasefire because it is a complicated technical process that requires good coordination between both sides.

Taliban have remained silent on government appeals for an extension of the truce, which was announced for Eid al-Fitr holidays.

Meanwhile, spokesmen of the two sides said on Twitter today that a Taliban delegation had arrived in Kabul to work with a government team on the release of prisoners on both sides.
