KABUL (Pajhwok): The First-ever facility Model United Nations (MUN) headquarters and its meetings have been established at the Kabul University by the varsity students’ association, an official said on Wednesday.

Abdullah Andish Yar, head of the newly-created centre at Kabul University, during the inaugural ceremony informed about efforts made for strengthening leadership skills and diplomacy of students.

He said the MUN program was held at Kabul University last year, and now the permanent center for such programs was launched whereby UN meetings would be simulated by students.

Andish Yar added the establishing of the centre was aimed at increasing the youth leadership capacity, empowering youngsters’ ideas with regard to economic development, peace and security.  “Students with practicing and modeling the UN would yield fruitful results for the country’s future growth.”

“The MUN club is comprised of 100 youths who are working to simulate UN activities for addressing the challenges through leadership and diplomacy,” he said.

Nahid Farid, a member of the Wolei Jirga, who attended the ceremony, said the creation of this centre at Kabul University was a useful measure that could help strengthen the youth leadership spirit.

“I believe that such meetings will help us be stronger on the international stage,” she expressed optimism about the conclusion of such plans.

Representative of UN Development Programme, Miss Cliare Van Loveren, said she hoped the launch of the centre would hone the skills and talent of the Afghan youth in the field of leadership and diplomacy and would prove effective for future for their country.
