The governor of Ghazni Mohammad Amin Omari called Haqqani’s visit to this province a great honor and thanked the ministry for its efforts and cooperation on behalf of the people living in Ghazni.

He presented information about the government’s efforts to provide temporary shelter for the forcibly returned Afghan refugees from neighboring countries and asked the people living in the province to help the returning citizens.

Abdul Rahman, head of the arbitration court of Ghazni province, spoke about justice and fairness in the country: “Islamic Emirate is a system of justice, fairness and transparency and these attributes guarantee the stability of the current system”.

Tribal leader Haji Muhammad Akram mentioned the sacrifices made by the people of Ghazni for the establishment of the Islamic system and their full support for the stability of the current system and the development of the country.

“The main source of the success of the current system is the direct relationship with the people.” He also called for the creation of necessary facilities in order to solve problems.

Speaking in the gathering Haqqani said: “Thanks to the bravery of the Afghans, the holy will and courage of the youth, we have achieved the independence of Afghanistan as a nation. Every Afghan should contribute fully to the development of the country so that we can be grateful for the blessing of freedom and independence.”

According to Haqqani, reconstruction and resettlement work has been accelerated in the country. He said there is now peace in Afghanistan as well as an independent system that has been established instead of arbitrary actions and chaos.

Latest World Bank decision will support millions of Afghans: IRC

Published

(Last Updated On: February 24, 2024)

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) has welcomed the latest move by the World Bank to use International Development Association (IDA) funds to scale up support to Afghanistan and expand the scope of its programs, saying these funds will support the delivery of services and access to jobs for Afghans who are continuing to endure a major humanitarian crisis as a result of decades of conflict, climate change and economic turmoil. 

IRC in a statement said that the focus of Approach 3.0 of the World Bank includes the delivery of livelihoods support which will support Afghanistan to at least maintain the current trajectory of low-level economic growth.

“This will be critical to maintaining and stabilizing the Afghan economy, while ensuring the survival of businesses and sources of income for millions. However, Afghanistan’s economic crisis remains the primary driver of the high level of humanitarian needs across the country,” the statement said.

IRC stated that although the announcement of Approach 3.0 represents a new milestone for meeting basic needs in Afghanistan, IRC urges other donors to recognise their role in continuing to contribute to both the delivery of basic services through the World Bank’s Afghanistan Resilience Trust Fund (ARTF) and to the humanitarian response.

All contributions are vital to sustaining support for Afghans, and the international community must continue to provide funding to sustain basic services and prevent the humanitarian crisis from worsening, it added.

A week ago, the World Bank Group announced that its executive board endorsed a new approach to aiding Afghanistan that will deploy some $300 million from the bank’s International Development Association fund for poor countries through United Nations agencies and other international organizations.

The shift marks the first time that the World Bank’s own funds would be sent to Afghanistan since the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) seized power in August 2021.
