The Khaama Press News Agency is an independent and non-political news organization established in 2010 by a team of highly committed and professional journalists to empower free press and journalism in Afghanistan.

The new agency’s name comes from an ancient Persian/Farsi word ‘Khaama‘ which means ‘Pen‘.

The news agency primarily focuses on reporting from Afghanistan on political, economic, health, business, human rights, women, sports, crimes, war, peace and entertainment subjects. It also covers any Afghanistan related regional and global news stories.
