The other relevant Ministries, including the Ministry of Interior Affairs and the Ministry of Vice and Virtue, attended the meeting, which was chaired by Mawlawi Najibullah Haqqani Minister of Communication and Information Technology.
During the meeting officials of the relevant Ministries reviewed previous work of the first meeting held on the matter, according to the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology.
The professional teams of relevant ministries and agencies that worked together with the telecommunication companies to ban PUBG and TikTok presented their work result and reports about banning the two applications in the country.
The Ministry said that after many discussions and negotiations, in coordination with the representatives of the telecommunication networks, it was decided to set a deadline of one month to ban TikTok and three months to ban the PUBG application.
Banning the PUBG application in Afghanistan was a decision in the previous administration and after the Islamic Emirate came to power in the country, the decision to close both applications, including TikTok, was updated again. (ILKHA)
