In the first year of commemoration of the killing of 13 American soldiers outside the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, the president of the United States has said that his country will maintain pressure against terrorist groups in Afghanistan without a military presence.

In a statement published by the White House on Friday, Joe Biden said that Washington has redoubled the global fight against ISIS (Daesh) and other terrorist groups that are a threat to American security.

“Our nation can never repay such incredible sacrifice—but we will never fail to honor our sacred obligation to the families and survivors they left behind,” the statement said.

“We now maintain pressure against terrorist threats without keeping thousands of troops in harm’s way on the ground in Afghanistan; my Administration will continue to hunt down terrorists who seek to harm the United States, wherever they may be,” the statement added.

Biden has described this attack on August 26 of last year, in which 13 US soldiers and 170 Afghan civilians were killed, as “sad and an unforgettable tragedy”.

The Kabul Airport’s attack was claimed by ISIS, which took place a few days before the end of the withdrawal of American forces from Afghanistan.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, however, assures that the forces of the IEA have complete sovereignty over the territory of Afghanistan and will not allow the security of any country to be threatened from Afghanistan soil.

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.
