KABUL, Afganistan - The Afghan caretaker government has resolved at least 800 ethnic conflicts among tribes and clans in the war-ravaged country over the past two years, deputy spokesman for the administration Hamdullah Fetrat has said.

The local media outlet Tolonews quoted Fetrat on Sunday as saying that "800 small and large ethnic conflicts have been resolved in different provinces" since the caretaker government was formed more than two years ago.

According to the official, most of the conflicts were about claims of ownership on land, forests and water.

In addition to poverty, Afghans have been facing years of drought and water shortage. Lack of access to water, especially in the countryside, often leads to bloody clashes and long-time conflicts among tribes and landlords.

To resolve those disputes and conflicts, the Ministry of Borders and Tribal Affairs has established a special commission to find amicable solution. - XINHUA
