Remarks of the spokesman of the IEA on world press freedom day

On the occasion of World Press Freedom Day, we congratulate all media outlets in Afghanistan.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan supports media activities and media can operate and broadcast freely within the law.

The main reason that number of media outlets have stopped their operation since the withdrawal of US forces, was their reliance on foreign funding.

We assure media outlets in Afghanistan, that we will do our best to help them solve their financial problems.

Currently, we do not have any journalist in our prisons. When a journalist is called to certain agencies for some clarification, it does not necessarily mean imprisonment.

In such cases, concerns by some parties is unjustified.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan continues its support from media and remains committed to media operations in Afghanistan. Insha Allah.
