The ceremony was held at Amani High School.

Speaking at the ceremony, Deputy Prime Minister Abdul Salam Hanafi said that 20,000 new posts were created in the education sector.

“We should establish schools, madrasas, vocational training centers and universities wherever needed,” said Hanafi.

“There are five stages in making curriculum, and the last stage is training of teachers. They should receive quality education,” said Noorulhaq Anwar, head of the administrative office of the prime minister.

Some teachers called on the government to launch capacity building programs for teachers.

“We should hand over what we owe to the right persons, otherwise our youths who are a source of hope of the people will be dragged to darkness,” said Burhanuddin Fazli, a teacher.

“Teachers should be given role in strengthening the education system,” said Shams-ur-Rahman, a teacher.

Some teachers complained about low salary and late payment.

“The salary teachers are getting does not suffice their expenses,” said Karimullah, a teacher.

“Teachers do not receive their salary on time due to which they can’t teach with a relaxed mind,” said Habib-ur-Rahman, a teacher.

The United States understands the importance of Chabahar Port for continued humanitarian supplies to Afghanistan and to provide the country economic alternatives, India’s foreign ministry said on Friday.

 India recently signed a 10-year agreement to develop and operate Iran’s strategic Chabahar Port as New Delhi aims to boost trade ties with landlocked Afghanistan and Central Asian countries, bypassing ports in its western neighbour and arch foe Pakistan.

But the deal has prompted a thinly veiled threat of sanctions from the United States, with whom India has developed close economic and military ties in recent decades.

India’s foreign ministry spokesman, Randhir Jaiswal, noted that since 2018, India has supplied 85,000 metric tons of wheat, 200 metric tons of pulses and 40,000 litres of pesticide Malathion to Afghanistan through Chabahar Port.

“The United States also has an understanding…understands the importance of Chabahar Port for continued humanitarian supplies to Afghanistan and to provide Afghanistan economic alternatives,” he said in a press conference.

“Our External Affairs Minister also spoke on this matter in several forums recently, where he said that we should not take a narrow view of this particular project, it has an important role to play as far as the region is concerned, connectivity is concerned, particularly for the landlocked countries in the area,” he added.

He also said that Russia‘s special envoy to Afghanistan, Zamir Kabulov, met with an Indian delegation led by Joint Secretary, J.P. Singh, who looks after Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, in the Ministry of External Affairs, essentially exchange of views on the ground and the situation and how the two countries look at the situation.

He said that they emphasized on the need to provide development assistance and humanitarian support to the people of Afghanistan.
