The Ministry of Higher Education said on Thursday that passports and visas for Russia for 365 scholarship students have been processed.

According to the ministry, the students were introduced to the ministry through the Russian Embassy in Kabul and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Ehsanullah Rasouli, one of the scholarship students said he appreciated the efforts of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) to organize the scholarships through the Ministry of Higher Education.

“Before being introduced to the Ministry of Higher Education, the candidates were in a state of uncertainty due to the blocking of the Russian Embassy, and fortunately, with their introduction to the ministry they will now get their passports and visas and will go to Russia for higher education,” he said.

The ministry said the students will attend Russian universities for bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees.

Last month, the Russian Embassy in Kabul announced that it had allocated 500 scholarships to Afghan students for the 2023-2024 academic year.

Pakistan also recently announced that it would provide specialized programs to more than 300 faculty members of public and private universities in Afghanistan.

The Special Representative of Pakistan for Afghanistan, Mohammad Sadiq, said Islamabad will work with the Afghan Ministry of Higher Education regarding the selection of students.

He said Pakistan’s goal was to increase the capacity of Afghan universities.

The United Nations Security Council is set to meet on Afghanistan on Monday to discuss the appointment of a special envoy for Afghanistan and the results of a recent international meeting on Afghanistan in Doha.

Naseer Ahmed Faiq, Chargé d’Affaires of the Afghanistan Permanent Mission to the UN, said that in this meeting, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will present a report about the appointment of special envoy for Afghanistan and the recent international meeting on Afghanistan in Doha.

Security Council Resolution 2721 in December last year requested that the Secretary-General brief the Security Council on the outcome of consultations within 60 days.

But the Islamic Emirate emphasizes that Afghanistan is not in crisis and with the presence of the United Nations Assistance Mission in the country, there is no need to appoint a new representative.

“As for the special representative, the position of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is very clear and there is no need to appoint a special representative for Afghanistan,” Zabihullah Mujahid, the spokesman of the Islamic Emirate, said.

“Afghanistan is a secure country and does not suffer from any crisis and needs international cooperation, but within the framework of the cooperation that existed before. In the presence of UNAMA, all issues between the United Nations and Afghanistan will be resolved.”

“There is no need for a special representative. They should cooperate with the people of Afghanistan. They should not prevent Afghanistan’s progress in the diplomatic field and should not consider Afghanistan a country facing a crisis,” Mujahid added.

The UN Doha meeting on Afghanistan was held last week. IEA declined an invitation to attend the meeting.
