No. 11-E

Foreign Minister Urmas Paet visited Kabul University and the Murad Khane School in Kabul and confirmed that supporting education and creating ties between friendship schools is one of the most important goals of Estonia’s activities in Afghanistan.

“We have supported the construction of a new building for the Afghanistan Centre at Kabul University with more than 30 000 euros and given an equivalent sum to improve the national archives and mobile library of Afghanistan,” said the foreign minister. “In 2011 we plan to support the publication of new books,” Paet added.

Paet emphasised the fact that one of Kabul University’s roles is to research and introduce the history of Afghanistan.

While visiting the construction site of the building for the Afghanistan Centre at Kabul University, Foreign Minister Paet confirmed that Estonia’s support will include the installation of the new centre’s IT systems in 2011.

Foreign Minister Paet also expressed his satisfaction over the continuation of 10 friendship school projects between Estonian and Afghan schools.

The foreign minister will visit the Murad Khane School in Kabul, whose Estonian friendship school is Pae Upper Secondary School in Tallinn.
