He added that with the advent of the Islamic Emirate, corruption in all government institutions has been reduced to zero, thus increasing the revenue to the state exchequer by millions.

Addressing the gathering, Minister of Mines and Petroleum Sheikh Shahabuddin Delawar said: "Afghanistan is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of mines, and the Islamic Emirate is trying its best to extract these mines and use them for the economic reconstruction of the country." He added that the Islamic Emirate is closely monitoring the mining of all the mines in Afghanistan and is trying to prevent unprofessional mining and instead extract these mines legally, which will also provide employment to thousands of people.
Sheikh Shahabuddin Delawar said that with the advent of the Islamic Emirate, the Ministry of Mines has accumulated over four billion Afghanis in revenue over the last four months, which is higher than the previous government's eight-month revenue (111 million Afghanis).
