Afghan Voice Agency (AVA)_Monitoring, The Minister of Foreign Affairs Malawi Amir Khan Muttaqi thanked the United Nations agencies and donors for their generous assistance to the people of Afghanistan and said that Afghanistan has a unique potential for development and self-reliance with a young and energetic workforce and vast natural resources.
