The training centre commander, Brig. Gen. Abdul Baseer Syedkheli, said at a ceremony held in this regard that the Afghans would honestly perform their duty and would work to further develop and improve the centre.
“We have learnt many skills both theoretically and practically from international advisors and our allies over the past years. I assure that the Ministry of Interior will try to continue imparting professional and practical trainings to police recruits at the centre,” he added.
