TEHRAN (FNA)- Head of the Islamic Republic News Agency's News College in Khorassan Razavi province Reza Amir Jahanshahi said that he is following up implementation of MoUs on media cooperation and holding journalism training courses for Afghans in his present visit to Afghanistan.
Jahanshahi made the remarks in at a press conference in Mazar-e Sharif city, in Northern Afghanistan on Sunday.
He noted that the first training course will be held before the end of the current Iranian year (ends March 20, 2013) by sending experienced professors from Iran to Afghanistan's Balkh province.
Also speaking at the press conference, Head of Balkh Provincial Information and Culture Office Salih Mohammad Khaliq said that IRNA's News College will also supply the province's libraries with books and reliable scientific resources in the field of journalism and news writing.
Iranian officials have always underlined that Tehran will maintain its support for the reconstruction and development process in Afghanistan, specially after the withdrawal of foreign forces from the war-torn country.
Iran is one of the most important donors to Afghanistan which has kept its promises to help to the reconstruction of the war-hit country.
Iran has built some roads, power transmission lines, and border stations, among the other infrastructure projects which would better link the two nations.
Iran has also contributed more than $50 million annually to Afghan anti-narcotics efforts in the last several years.
