A local Afghan Pashto Television Channel Shamshad TV on Sunday launched a news service to broadcast China-related news.

Chinese Ambassador to Afghanistan Yao Jing, Deputy Information and Culture Minister Sayed Aqa Houssain Sancharaki and founder of Shamshad TV Fazil Karim Fazil were among other officials attending a ceremony to launch the service.

The move came after Shamshad has inked an agreement with the China's CGTN (China Global Television Network) recently.

Shamshad will broadcast the 15-minute news service from 05:00 p.m. local time to 05:15 p.m. daily.

Speaking at the ceremony, Ambassador Yao Jing said China will continue to support Afghanistan's peace and reconstruction process to see a peaceful and prosperous Afghanistan.

The Chinese ambassador also emphasized for more people-to-people contact between the two nations.

"Afghanistan and China are good neighbors and launching China-related news service today would definitely enhance and improve cultural and social relations between the two neighboring nations," Fazil told the ceremony.
