The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s (IEA) Ministry of Mines and Petroleum (MoMP) says that in the near future, the contract for the “TAPI” project will be signed with Turkmenistan and that the process of distributing liquid gas as a result of this project will begin in Guzara district and industrial towns of Herat province.

According to MoMP, a delegation-led by this ministry has travelled to Turkmenistan in order to sign the contract for transmitting gas to Afghanistan.

“The contract of this project will be signed within a few days and Inshallah the gas distribution will reach the city and industrial parks of Herat starting from Guzara district,” said Hussamuddin Saberi, deputy of MoMP.

Meanwhile, the members of the private sector also consider the imports of Turkmenistan’s gas into the country economically important, calling on the Islamic Emirate to support this project further.

They also consider the use of TAPI project gas to be very important for Afghanistan’s economy and that the practical use of this project can reduce the price of gas in the country.

“Our hope from the government is to start this project soon, and the sooner it starts, the better it is for Afghanistan’s production, economy and security,” said Mirwais Hajizadah, a member of private sector.

Economic experts meanwhile have called on the IEA to increase its support for large economic projects in the country and start their practical work.

Due to the lack of security, however, the work of big economic projects in the country was stopped in the past years, but the government has recently said that the conditions are ready for implementing huge economic projects such as TAPI and that they are trying to kick off the practical work of these projects.

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.
