-YAZICIOGLU AND AFGHAN HEALTH MINISTER SIGN PROTOCOL

ANKARA – A protocol for the improvement and management of the Ibn-i Sina Hospital in Kabul, Afghanistan, has been signed by Turkish State Minister Mustafa Said Yazicioglu and Afghan Health Minister Sayed Mohammad Amin Fatemi here on Thursday.

Speaking at a ceremony held at the Turkish International Cooperation Agency (TIKA) in Ankara, Fatemi noted that “relations between Turkey and Afghanistan went through historical tests successfully. No force can hinder relations between the two countries.”

“Turkey helps Afghanistan in every area. Turkey’s support especially in the health sector is highly important,” Fatemi stressed.

“The protocol signed today will save the Kabul hospital from being dependent on foreign sources,” Fatemi stated. “TIKA has a prominent role in the reconstruction of Afghanistan,” he underlined.

Fatemi expressed gratitude for the presence of Turkish troops in Afghanistan. “Your brave soldiers provide security for the Afghan people. Our security implies the security of the region. And the security of the region means security for the world,” Fatemi underscored.

Meanwhile, Yazicioglu remarked that the “protocol signed today shows the common will of both countries to develop bilateral relations. Turkey provides great support to Afghan projects especially in health and education sectors. Since 2004, TIKA completed 163 projects and spent around 50 million USD in Afghanistan.”

“The protocol envisages the physical improvement of the Kabul hospital. The hospital will have 200 beds and will be able to make researches on its own. The management of the hospital will be assumed by Turkish directors temporarily,” Yazicioglu added.
