President Dr Arif Alvi Monday reiterated Pakistan’s offer to provide virtual and online education facilities to Afghani students through Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) and the Virtual University of Pakistan (VUP).
Talking to Mufti Taqi Usmani, after being informed that Mufti Sahib was going to Afghanistan for discussions with the leadership, the president said that since Afghanistan did not possess nationwide internet connectivity, therefore, initially the educational materials of AIOU and VUP could be communicated to Afghan students (male and female) through its television network.
The offer was made when the Minister of Education of Afghanistan visited the president and felt strong concerns for Afghan students. The president repeatedly made this offer in meeting with the Afghan ambassador and Afghan counsel generals and with other Afghan government leadership, directly or indirectly, through interaction with them.
