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.

Words

As disrupting the social contract between the citizen and the state through an all-out attack on freedoms embodied in the creation of the nation state and the international system is the core objective of the Fifth Wave, mobilization of the state system at all levels is crucial to defeating and destroying this wave of violence against citizens and states.

Uncertainties are solved; capability of our forces has been proven to the world; our people’s trust in them has been consolidated, and our forces are turning the tide of war in favor of themselves. These are all achieved as a result of sacrifices paid by Afghanistan’s National Defense and Security Forces.

We need to have an election with full transparency and in an atmosphere of fair, equal and just competition among all candidates, therefore, it is required to strongly and decisively prevent any interference by government officials, including district governors, police chief commanders, governors and all levels of government and other stakeholders.

No sin after the murder of innocents is bigger than creating fear on worshipers and take their necessary security and peace intended for fulfilling religious obligations. Individuals, preventing Muslims from fulfillment of Islamic rituals in the Islamic society, are in open enmity with the religion.

Until there is no strong government in the society, we will not see a stable peace. The strong government does not mean personal power, but rule of law, implementation of constitution and ensuring equality among each Afghan.

The Afghanistan’s beauty, strength and stability are its people, with ethnic groups who are equal with each other, living in this dignified land. I couldn’t be prouder to represent them with honor.

Afghanistan on political side, has witnessing one of the greatest generational change. Half of our Cabinet members are under forty years of age, and this is an extraordinary hope for a country that has suffered forty years of war.
