Afghanistan requests support for its education system

Kabul, Aug 1 (Prensa Latina) The acting Minister of Higher Education, Abdul Baqi Haqqani, asked the international community to support the educational system in Afghanistan, regardless of the country's political problems.

“If the world wants Afghanistan to develop, the only practical option is to help our country’s higher education sector and support educational institutions to grow and the country become self-sufficient,” Haqqani said during the opening ceremony of the University of Kabul complex.

According to the rectory of the center, the complex was built by the Chinese government and has three conference rooms and 40 classrooms.

The acting minister criticized the United States for denying visas to officials of the Ministry of Higher Education, saying this would have a negative effect on the country’s education system.

Haqqani added that despite the country’s economic challenges, his ministry keeps the doors of universities open for boys and girls to continue their education.

Shortly after the return of the Taliban to power, in September 2021, the government ordered the closure of schools for girls with studies beyond the sixth grade, which was strongly criticized inside and outside Afghanistan.
