KABUL: Officials of the Afghanistan Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (ATRA) on Thursday marked World Telecommunication and Information Society Day and said that Afghanistan has witnessed great achievements in this sector but that efforts are being made to roll out more services.
Omar Mansoor Ansari, head of ATRA, said that endeavors are underway to provide equal services to all citizens across the country.
“We want those who dominated on internet networks, whether it is ATRA or Ministry of Telecommunication to identify and block the accounts, and bring the perpetrators to justice,” said Shinwari.
A presidential adviser, meanwhile, raised the issue of fake social media accounts which he said should be blocked.
“We expect telecommunication networks, especially internet providers, to identify and block fake accounts, and see that the perpetrators are brought to justice,” said Malalai Shinwari, a presidential adviser. To mark the day, Afghanistan telecommunication companies also showcased their services during an expo Thursday in Kabul.
