Pashto – پښتو
“Pashto is an Indo-Iranian language of the East Iranian branch, spoken primarily in Afghanistan and Pakistan.”
“Pashto is considered to be the second-most important Iranian language, after Persian, given its widespread use in Afghanistan and Pakistan, its official status in Afghanistan, and its long literary tradition dating back to or before the 16th century (MacKenzie 1992; Skjærvø 1989).”
