KHOST CITY (PANinfo-icon): A poetry session was held in southeastern Khost province on Monday with the support of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistaninfo-icon (UNAMA), officials said.  

Among others, several government officials and noted poets from the province attended the event, jointly organised by the Ministry of Information and Culture and UNAMA.

Director of Information Muhammad Amin Shah told Pajhwok Afghan News conveying the message of peace to people through poetry was the main purpose of the gathering.

"It was a good poetry session and if the government and the United Nations pay attention to such programmes, peace could be restored in the province," said a young poet, Lahore Abid.

Governor Abdul Jabbar Naeemi, addressing the session, said hectic peace efforts had been made in the province during the last few months. The campaign would continue, he promised.

"Many tribes have settled their disputes over land, hills and jungles and militants handed over their weapons to the Disbandment of Illegal Armed Group (DIAG) for peace in the province," he said.
