Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai, the deputy minister of Foreign Affairs said that baseless criticism by neighboring countries will negatively affect bilateral relations between Afghanistan and its neighbors.
Speaking at the celebration ceremony of World Tourism Day in Kabul, the deputy Foreign Minister said neighboring countries are blaming Afghanistan for the spread of terrorism from its soil to gain the satisfaction of world powers, which is not a rational solution.
“Criticizing Afghanistan and baseless claims in every single conference and gathering will negatively affect relations between countries which is in favor of no country.” said Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai, the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs.
“We want people’s problems to be resolved. We are against creating any kind of problems not only in Afghanistan but also in other countries. No matter if they are Afghans or nationals of other countries, we want to bring facilities", said Khairullah Khairkhwa, acting Minister of Information and Culture.

The representatives of tourism in Afghanistan urged the Islamic Emirate to resolve the tourism-related issues in the country.
“Those who break the [tourism] rules in the country should be recognized and held accountable so that tourism firms are not blacklisted or their authorities are not arrested," said Ali Asghar, head of a tourism company.
