The Ministry of Commerce and Industry says that Kabul and Moscow have reached an agreement on the purchase of oil and gas and this agreement will be signed soon.

Nooruddin Azizi, acting Minister of Commerce and Industry, said Saturday that many banks in Afghanistan and Russia are under embargo and money will be transferred through a third country.

“Alhamdulillah, we had very important and useful discussions with the Russian side. We will expand these discussions and expand economic relations, and we will reach an official agreement on the purchase of oil and wheat,” said Azizi.

According to Azizi, a special center for Afghan exports to Russia will be established to send Afghan goods to Russian markets.

In the meantime, Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce and Investment (ACCI) believes that Russian goods, especially wheat and oil, are cheaper than other countries.

Economic experts have said that the development of Afghanistan’s economic and trade relations with Russia can have a positive effect on Afghanistan’s markets and economic system.

However, the citizens of the country said that the Islamic Emirate should control the price of oil in the country’s markets by any means possible.

Based on the statements of the ACCI, currently the trade between Afghanistan and Russia totals $200 million and Kabul imports most of the food and fuel from Central Asian countries.

Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai, the political deputy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said on Sunday that the development of a country depends on reading, but reading habits in Afghanistan are very low.

Stanikzai made the remarks at a ceremony in Kabul to unveil books printed during the past 11 months.

“In Afghanistan, compared to other countries, people read very little. Maybe some people believe that there were many problems here, there was a war, the economy was weak and people are looking for bread and don’t have time to read, but these problems exist in other countries as well. If there is no war in other countries, there is poverty,” Stanikzai said.

He stated now that security is ensured in the country and there is no feudalism, youths should read under the shadow of the Islamic system, because without reading, success cannot be achieved.

“If youths become interested in reading and books, Allah willing, society will get rid of problems very soon. We Afghans have no equal on the battlefield. We have a lot of progress in this regard, and no one else has this honor. We should try to tell the world that with the takeover of the Islamic Emirate, there is peace and security in Afghanistan. There is no more war; there is no more feudalism; there is no more looting. There is an Islamic and Sharia system,” Stanikzai said.

He has also said that currently many books are imported from other countries, adding that scientific and research institutions and authors of the country should try to write books themselves.
