The Taliban have proposed a three-month ceasefire in Afghanistan in return for the release of seven thousand captured fighters.
An Afghan government negotiator, Nader Nader described the proposal as a demand.
The government has so far not reacted to the proposal.
Mr. Nader said Taliban leaders had also requested that their names be removed from a United Nations blacklist.
Reports say clashes between the government and the Taliban have intensified since U.S troops began to withdraw from the country.
