KABUL (Pajhwok): As saplings plantation campaign has been underway in parts of the country, an official of the environment protection agency said on Tuesday that his department was all set to plant one million trees in the capital Kabul from tomorrow (Wednesday).
Kazem Humayun stressed on people to take part in the tree plantation drive to turn the environment clean and green.
He told Pajhwok Afghan News the campaign would start from the Marshal Fahim Military Academy with the ministry of agriculture and Kabul municipality would also take part in the initiative.
