LONDON: Iran International news channel launched an Afghan-version of its station on Sunday in the midst of the US withdrawal from the country.
The channel’s launch comes at a time when the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan has been all but completed, and its media industry is set to be heavily affected.
By broadcasting documentaries, analysis and news programmes, Afghanistan International channel announced that it aims to provide a comprehensive outlook of the events unfolding in the country.
Afghanistan International will draw its news from journalists on the ground as well as ones in its newsrooms in London and Washington.
The channel broadcasts on the satellite “Turkmenalan,” and its website Afintl.com, in addition to its accounts on social networking sites and radio broadcasts.
