Pajhwok marks 10th founding anniversary
KABUL (Pajhwok): Pajhwok Afghan News (PAN) celebrated its 10th founding anniversary at a simple but dignified ceremony in Kabul on Tuesday, pledging adherence to journalistic principles, including objectivity and freedom of expression.
Addressing the four-hour event, PAN Director Danish Karokhel praised Pajhwok staffers for working with a high sense of commitment under difficult circumstances. He hoped they would continue to follow core professional standards.
“Undeterred by adverse conditions, Pajhwok’s editors and reporters have done their best to give people accurate and timely information on issues touching their lives,” Karokhel said, commending the neutral coverage of the election process.
Founded 10 years ago and having more than 100 workers across Afghanistan, Pajhwok is an independent news agency headquartered in Kabul. A large number of workers participated in the ceremony that began with Khatmul Quran.
