President's Words
Connectivity is the core goal of people, government and economic stratum of Afghanistan. We are the people seeking for connectivity, not separation. We neither want division nor isolation; we want connection and cooperation. Opening of Lapis Lazuli corridor doesn’t signify closure of other routes between Afghanistan and South Asia; in reverse, Lapis Lazuli links South Asia with Central Asia, the Caucasus and Europe.
