KABUL: In a meeting with representatives of Farah and Badghis provinces in lower house of parliament, President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani late on Saturday said western zone of the country has been paid enough attention for development and investment, adding equal development of all 34 provinces was government’s key priority, a presidential press office statement said.
Pointing to Turkmenistan’s imported power to western part of the country, President Ghani said: “Necessary coordination has been made in this regard and progress can be felt.”
While appreciating active role of women in Farah and Badghis provinces, the president said “TAPI will reach Herat province by next year,” which is another achievement in Afghanistan’s development sectors.
Meanwhile, the President addressed security threats in the provinces, saying the government will pay more attention to other cities, as it has already started extending security measures throughout the country.
