The acting Minister of Information and Culture considered the role of culture in ending the war and establishing peace important and valuable. "Unfortunately, in the last forty years we have witnessed the gradual death of culture and the decline of cultural works," he said.

Minister Zuhair acknowledged that the Ministry of Information and Culture was facing difficulties in the areas of video, audio, print media, book publishing, the state of writing and the printing industry. He added:
"There is freedom of speech and press in the true sense, but in terms of quality, there are problems in this area as well."
The acting minister of Information and Culture also called the translation into the official languages of the country effective and said: more attention should be paid to the translation of books into the official languages of the country.

At the end of his speech to the cultural figures, the acting minister of information and culture said:
"We need your support and cooperation in improving the cultural situation."
Then Ahmad Zia Rifat, a professor at Kabul University, spoke and described the rift between governmental and non-governmental cultural institutions as one of the most serious problems.
He asked government to ease the groundwork for relations between governmental and non-governmental institutions, as well as facilitate the relations between non-governmental cultural institutions and international cultural institutions.
Rafat cited a number of non-governmental media outlets as the language of the Taliban, ISIS and other terrorist groups, and called on the Ministry of Information and Culture to prevent them.
