Security Capability Review - Key International Airports in Afghanistan



Afghanistan is the constant recipient of the world media, whose focus concentrates on the huge struggle to bring a peaceful end to the long Taliban insurgency that has resulted in unqualified tragedy for so many and threatened the entire infrastructure of the country.


The government understands the need to build a modern civil aviation system that meets ICAO standards and recommended practices, resulting in a solid infrastructure that becomes a Major Economic Force in the continued growth and development of Afghanistan.
