A CIA spokesman said that the National Archives now has custody over those secret documents, along with 90,000 or more pages of agency files on the assassination that have already been released.
According to Fox News, the unclassified material has files of several long-deceased CIA officials, who are believed to have knowledge about the movements and actions of Lee Harvey Oswald.
Some of these officials are also believed to have helped the CIA conceal this knowledge from the staff members of the two major official probes into the assassination, the report added.
The federal law has mandated that all known records relating to the Kennedy's assassination should be released by 2017, the report added.
The Assassination Records and Review Board would consider the appeal on any objection raised by agencies.
However, the spokesman said the CIA has no plans to pose any such objections as of now.
