KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Internal and externalinfo-icon enemies of Afghanistaninfo-icon could not stop the country's progress by burning schools and killing teachers, President Hamid Karzai said on Tuesday.

Addressing a graduation ceremony at the National Management Institute of Afghanistan, Karzai called the occasion another sign of the headway made in recent years.

Hundreds of schools had been closed due to instability and several teachers killed in different parts of the country by unidentified gunmen over the past few years.

The first-ever batch of 1,050 students, including 21 percent females, graduated from the institute in mathematics, management and computer science.

Karzai promised to take up the issue of jobs for the graduates in government departments at a Cabinet meeting. He called upon the youth to seek knowledge, as educationinfo-icon was the main driver of progress.

Education Minister Ghulam Farooq Wardak also addressed the ceremony, hoping the staff shortage problem in government organisations would be resolved with the graduation of the students.

Wardak said the number of technical institutes in the country would be increased by the Education Ministry from 142 to 242 over the next three years.
