Kabul, Jan 16: Former Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai has rejected Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan’s “willingness” to send qualified and trained manpower to Kabul as there is “no need for such manpower”.
While chairing the third meeting of the Apex Committee on Afghanistan, Imran Khan on Friday directed the authorities to explore bilateral cooperation with friendly countries to stave off humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan by exporting qualified and trained manpower especially in medical, IT, finance and accounting fields, The Express Tribune reported.
Responding to Khan, Karzai on Saturday said Afghanistan has hundreds of thousands of qualified and educated boys and girls.
“There is no need for a foreign workforce in Afghanistan,” he said.
Hamid Karzai also urged the de facto authorities in Kabul to provide working facilities to Afghan boys and girls, who are university graduates, and facilitate the return of Afghan experts and specialists to the country, The Khaama News Agency said.
