GhaniKABUL: A high-level meeting at the Presidential Palace has approved a plan for the control of the country’s airspace and made a decision on the release of Hezb-i-Islami Afghanistan prisoners.

The Presidential Palace said the meeting, chaired by President Ashraf Ghani late on Tuesday, accorded approval to the Afghanistan Civil Aviation Authority (ACAA) strategy for airspace control.
