“To get rid of the impact of contaminated chemicals, plant a sapling,” Deputy PM

KABUL: First Deputy Prime Minister for Economic of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan Mullah Abdul Ghani Beradar, during a tree planting campaign has said: “The only way to get rid of the impact of contaminated  fatal chemicals is to plant a sapling,” his office at the Presidential Palace said in a statement the other day.
The campaign held by the Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock in Badam Bagh area of the capital Kabul, was attended by high-ranking Islamic Emirate authorities including First Deputy Prime Minister of the Islamic Emirate Mullah Abdul Ghani Beradar and second Deputy Prime Minister, Mawlavi Abdul Salam Hanafi, according to the statement received by The Kabul Times.
The First Deputy Prime Minister, Mullah Abdul Ghani Beradar said: “We appreciate such programs [sapling] to make Afghanistan green and believe that the move would help wide areas of arid lands and the nature get greened.”
Afghanistan is an agricultural country and has lots of water and natural resources. Afghanistan’s air might be clearer than other countries, but the use of dangerous bombs and chemical weapons by the occupiers is the main reason behind air pollution in the country, said the deputy PM as quoted by the statement.
He called on the citizens to take part in the greenery of their country and said: “The only way to get rid of a polluted environment and to avoid the effect of chemical weapons is to plant trees, bushes and make Afghanistan green.
Meanwhile, second Deputy Prime Minister Mawlavi Abdul Salam Hanafi said that investment in the agriculture sector will strengthen the country’s economy.
“The Islamic Emirate will spare no effort and use all its capacity to strengthen agriculture and encourage national and international investors and invest in the country,” said Hanafi in the statement.
This is to be noted that the Kabul Municipality is planned to plant 600,000 trees for the forthcoming new year in the Kabul city.
