At a meeting with university teachers, students and researchers, Ghani said: "We, as a nation, don’t have the basic understanding of our natural wealth.

“As long as we don’t have a clear understanding of our opulence, we can’t chart our path properly,” the president was quoted as saying in a statement from his office.

Ghani called the nation-building a common duty of all Afghans, asking the academic to organise a national debate on better devising ways of utilising the country’s resources.

“You have the opportunity to become a great generation of contemporary history, a generation that takes Afghanistan from instability to stability, from poverty to prosperity and from anarchy to a stable democracy,” he told the audience.

Ghani said the worldinfo-icon's most important reserves were in Afghanistan, which could help transform the country into a major copper and iron producer.

He also pointed to the underground water shortage, warning future generations would be deprived of the vital resource if the deep wells continuedunabated.
