KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): President Hamid Karzai has called upon the Talibaninfo-icon to let ordinary children go to schools the way they allowed adults of some leaders to study in foreign universities.

“End your enmity with educationinfo-icon and let Afghan children go to school,” Karzai asked the armed opposition group in his biweekly radio speech aired on Friday.
