FAIZABAD, Afghanistan, Nov. 13 (Xinhua) -- A total of 250 Afghan youths joined the national army after completing a 70-day military training course, provincial director for Information and Culture Qari Maazudin Ahmadi said Sunday.

At the graduation ceremony held in the premise of 219 Omar-e-Salis Military Corps, the newly graduated soldiers vowed to serve the nation elsewhere in the country after receiving their certificates, the official added.

The Taliban-run caretaker administration has planned to build a 150,000-strong national army that would be able to cope with any eventuality, said Enayatullah Khawarazmi, spokesman for Afghanistan's defense ministry.
