However, there are problems and challenges in the capital Kabul, but our efforts are ongoing to fight criminal cases, but we ask the people to cooperate with us in this regard, he continued.
Expressing concern over rumors being released in social media by citizens, he says when something happens, our people try to reflect that big, an action causes our people to think Kabul situation is really worse, however, it is not so.
