Ambassador Haidari Speaks on Ariana News to Discuss the COVID-19 Pandemic and Need for Public Cooperation to Contain It
Colombo: - On April 14, 2020, Ambassador M. Ashraf Haidari interviewed via Skype with Ariana News, discussing in Dari/Farsi the global COVID-19 pandemic and the need for public cooperation to prevent its spread in Afghanistan and elsewhere in the world. In doing so, he discussed the response of the Sri Lankan government and people to the contagious virus and the lessons that can be learned from this and other contexts for an even more effective response in Afghanistan's much more complex context where an ongoing imposed war has so far hindered the government's efforts to implement its well-defined strategy in the fight against COVID-19.
