KABUL, Dec. 5 (Xinhua) -- Four hundred and twenty newly graduated soldiers have been deployed in Afghanistan's northern region, the Defense Ministry said here on Sunday.
The graduates have received advanced training in Army Corps 217 Omari stationed in northern Kunduz province, the ministry said in a statement.
They will serve the nation and ensure peace and security in the northern region, the statement read.
On Thursday, 450 soldiers completed their military training and received graduation certificates in Army Corps Almansori in eastern Afghanistan.
With the Taliban's takeover of the country in August and the formation of a caretaker government of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan in early September, all the 350,000 security and defense forces of the former administration have been dismantled. Enditem
