Qatar is becoming a real leader amongst the Muslim countries.
The only American soldier held prisoner in Afghanistan has been freed and is in US custody, according to US officials.
The officials said Sgt Bowe Bergdahl's release was part of a negotiation that includes the release of five Afghan detainees held at Guantanamo.
The negotiation between the US and the Taliban was mediated by the government of Qatar.
Bergdahl, 28, had been held by the Taliban since June 30, 2009. The officials said he is in good condition and able to walk.
President Barack Obama said Sgt Bergdahl's recovery "is a reminder of America's unwavering commitment to leave no man or woman in uniform behind on the battlefield".
Officials said the Taliban turned over the 28-year-old this evening in Afghanistan. Several dozen US special forces were involved in the exchange, which took place in eastern Afghanistan, near the Pakistan border.
Sgt Bergdahl, of Hailey, Idaho, is expected to be transferred to Bagram Air Field, the main US base in Afghanistan, then on to the United States.
He is thought to have been captured by members of the Haqqani network, which operates in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region and has been one of the deadliest threats to US troops in the war.
Christians having dreams and converting to Islam:
Invitation to Islam
Jesus taught people to do the Will of God (according to
Mark 3:35) in order to become his brothers, mothers or sisters. A Muslim means
one who submits to the Will of God. Do you want to become a brother/sister of
Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim.
