We are committed to protect all citizens

In such a situation, it is the duty of the government to protect them. We assure everyone that it is our duty to provide security to every person who comes to Afghanistan to strengthen peace and stability.
India-Afghanistan ties can be stronger than cricket
Asked about the role of cricket in India-Afghanistan relations, Anas Haqqani said that it is true and a fact that the Afghanistan national cricket team has a place in international cricket. The Afghan team has achieved this feat in a very short time. The people of Afghanistan love their cricket team and Islamic Emirate supports and helps in every possible way. We formally endorse and truly promote every member of the team. Cricket can bring both the countries closer. We want India and its cricket board to help our cricket team in future issues and let this sport become a medium to strengthen our relationship.
