Mullah Mohammad Abbas Akhund, the Acting Minister of Disaster Management, said at a meeting with UNICEF’s head in Kabul that the UN agency must not politicize its work.
According to the ministry’s press office, Akhund met with Deputy Humanitarian Coordinator for Afghanistan Fran Equiza and pointed out that the disaster management ministry was non-political and that UNICEF should stay away from politics and continue to serve the people of Afghanistan.
Referring to the problems of the residents of Wakhan district of Badakhshan, he said the ministry’s priority was to take care of the needy in the most remote parts of the country – those who do not have decent living conditions.
At the same time, Equiza said the agency is trying to serve the people of Afghanistan. He also gave an update on current programs being conducted by the organization in the country.
