Journalists in Badakhshan, in addition to cherishing international day of press freedom, stated that some local officials in the province do not give complete answers to their questions and this has slowed down the process of providing information to the people.
Officials, on the other hand, tell that they will advise all local authorities to fully cooperate with journalists from now on.
In the meantime, Khair Mohammad Khairzada, Deputy Governor of Badakhshan, confirming challenges faced by journalists, says that local government is striving to remove obstacles causing lack of access to information so that journalists could comfortably get their required data.
Officials in Badakhshan have talked about bringing facilities in journalists’ line of work previously as well, but as it can be seen, little has been done in this regard.
