Pointing to the importance of Afghanistan’s mineral resources, Ghani suggested that German automobile companies should use the country’s lithium in their automotive industry, a press release issued by the Presidential Palace said. 

“Afghanistan’s mineral resources requires proper management. The quality of Helmand’s lithium is very high and it can be used in the automotive industry,” Ghani said.

In response to this, the German president said they will work on the use of Afghanistan’s lithium by Dutch companies.
