|Iranian publisher distributes over 100,000 books in Afghanistan||
TEHRAN -- Iran’s Al-Hoda International Publications has distributed over 100,000 copies of its latest books in Afghan bookstores over the past year.
The books, which include over 2000 titles, have been distributed all across Afghanistan from the branch of the publisher in Kabul.
All Iranian publishers can offer their books at the Al-Hoda bookstore in the country, Al-Hoda Marketing Manager Hamid Kalhori told the Persian service of FNA on Sunday.
Persian is spoken and written Afghanistan and this creates an opportunity for Iranian publishers to offer their books in the country, he added.
The Al-Hoda Publication’s bookstore established its Kabul branch in 2003. Shortly afterwards, it was shut down for security reasons. However, it reopened in September 2012.
The bookstore has offered books by several Iranian publications including SAMT Publications, which provides books for university students.
Afghan bookstores had to sell mostly second-hand Iranian books before Al-Hoda reopened its office in the country.
