Bernadette Meehan, a spokeswoman for the White House's National Security Council, confirmed that the prisoner kept at the Parwan prison in Afghanistan would be brought to the United States to stand trial there.
She did not elaborate. The question as to whether the US officials have notified their Russian colleagues about the decision to bring the prisoner to the US remains unanswered.
Commenting on the decision passed by the US administration, the spokeswoman cited an agreement on security, signed by Washington and Kabul and which goes into force since January 1, that envisages that Afghanistan takes over responsibility for all detention centers on its territory.
