Located in the Middle East, Afghanistan is a landlocked country bordered by Pakistan, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and China. Afghanistan’s Islamic republic is based in the country’s capital, Kabul, which is also its largest city and the fifth fastest-growing city in the world. The terrain is made up of rugged mountains with some plains in the north and southwest. Its arid to semiarid climate features cold winters and hot summers, which effect the beginning and ending of school for students. With natural gas, petroleum, salt, coal, copper and arable land, Afghanistan is rich with natural resources. Afghanistan also produces some of the finest fruits and nuts in the area, including apricots, pomegranates and melons.
