The Kabul Times is a state-run English language newspaper in Afghanistan, initially established on February 27, 1962. As of 2018 it has a daily circulation of 47,000 and is offered in both print and online formats. The newspaper is generally viewed as having a Pro-government political viewpoint.

Following the 1978 coup, the Kabul Times was renamed Kabul New Times, and began to print Communist rhetoric that was reminiscent of days during the Cold War and was highly confrontational towards Western culture.

The paper resumed publication in March 2002 after the Taliban's fall.[1]
