2:41 pm
are under control of the afghan government which have been able we have been able to give it and give us their results has been very positive see that in two important problems of afghanistan which has been traditionally poppy growing hard in the south in the east and by the action in the north when some project has been delivered irrigation project alternative. culture the production of culture of poppy was going to do significantly why are there area which did as insecurity in the are not in full control of course the production has been increased. so more and more the security will come and do syria and more and more the african government will become in control listen there's going to be popular according to experience that we have and other part of afghanistan mr foreign minister the outside world gets an impression that you and your government colleagues are only save within a couple compounds and unable to travel across your own country is this send
