It will play a big role in the security, stability and economy of the region,” Muttaqi said.

"I call on the international community, the Asian Bank, the World Bank, the IMF, the United Nations, and the Western world, as well as those who spent 20 years bombing and destroying Afghanistan. They now have a responsibility to actively contribute to the rehabilitation of Afghanistan,” Stanikzai said.
Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, the deputy prime minister for economic affairs, noted that the new Kabul project is an important national project that involves the Islamic Emirate and the private sector and offers both domestic and foreign investors an opportunity to invest.
