Background:
The 217th Corps of the Afghan Military was formally inaugurated in Northeast of Afghanistan on Wednesday.

Deputy defense minister Gen. Hilaluddin Hilal said the 20th Pamir Division in Kunduz province has upgraded to 217th Pamir Corps and Gen. Nabiullah Mirzayi, the former Chief of Staff of Special Operations Corps has been introduced as its commander. Gen. Hilal said the establishment of 217th Pamir Corps in Northeast of Afghanistan is a positive and effective step to provide security and defend the residents of north-eastern parts of the country. Defense officials said the new corps has two brigades. Military experts are skeptical about the ability of the corps to help security in the northeastern parts of the country. (20190411)
