The number of police forces has reached nearly 200,000, a senior official of the MoI said.

Speaking at a press conference in Kabul on Sunday, the Deputy Minister of the MoI, Noor Jalal Jalali, said that security has improved in the country.

“The security is improved 90 percent compared to before. Countering criminal activities, corruption and narcotics is serious,” he said.

Jalali said that Daesh is being eliminated and that its attacks have recently decreased.

“Wherever the Islamic Emirate rules, It (Daesh) is being eliminated. If you compare the previous incidents with the current, it is way less,” he said.

Jalali also talked about the general amnesty announced by the supreme leader of the Islamic Emirate, Mawlawi Hibatullah Akhundzada, and said that the decree has been observed.

“The commission to facilitate the return of Afghan politicians is part of this decree. You see that influential leaders of Afghanistan who worked as members of parliament, as well as governors, and ministers have returned.

This itself is the implementation of the decree,” he said.

According to the MoI, the forces of the Islamic Emirate have uncovered 29 drug factories over the last year.

It has detained 2,222 people on charges of selling drugs.—ToloNews
