Exhibition of Iranian products begins.
Household items, food products, packaging samples, makeup tools, transportation means and other things are on display at the exhibition that will continue until Friday.
Toryalay Ghaus, deputy head of the Herat Chamber of Commerce and Industries, told Pajhwok Afghan News afghan products such as motorcycles, carpets and rugs were also on display.
Governor Ahmad Yousuf Noristani, while inaugurating the exhibition, said Herat was a one of the developed provinces of the country. He added organizing such events would further boost commercial ties with Iran.
Mohammad Mehdi Morravajul Sharia, deputy governor of Iran's Khurasan province, said it was the third joint exhibition to be held during the past four years.
He promised even bigger exhibitions of Iranian products would be arranged in Afghanistan. Also on Sunday, hundreds of people took to the streets, demanding punishment for the murderers of an Afghan youth who was kidnapped in the middle of the holy month of Ramazan.
The protesters,who gathered in front of the Governor's House, asked "why security officials failed to secure the release of Abdul Wasi, 18, who was brutally murdered despite the payment of ransom." Haji Ghulam Haider, a relative of the deceased, said they did not have enmity with anyone.
Even then they paid $20,000 in ransom, but the kidnapers killed Abdul Wasi, an eighth grader.
However, gubernatorial spokesman Naqeeb Arvin said the governor had met the relatives of the boy and promised them to bring the perpetrators to book.
