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

Focus and political will in the region for defining "poverty" and "terrorism" has been created as two of our major challenges. Terrorism is not a short-lived phenomenon, if the four previous waves of terrorism were only a sign, unfortunately, the fifth wave is a phenomenon in the middle term. We have to put our forces together, keep our focus and move forward. Afghans will overcome these challenges with the ability of their flexible culture.

The security forces who sacrifices their lives for defending the country should be called ‘Shaheed’ and we should give further assistance and attention to the families of martyrs and injured forces.

In a country where, daily war takes lives of our most beloved ones, bringing peace wants a huge price from us. The message that we receive from blood of martyrs, tells us that for the peace & stability of the country we should struggle and tells the cheaters that every dead is not Shahadat, and the dead which kills the innocent and sacrifice the women, are suicide, as per Quran Says, this kills yourself and others, and also it demolish other world as well.

Everyone affirmed in the history of the world, and all the experienced officers of the world admitted that in the last two centuries, the Afghan soldiers are exceptional. Hence, paying attention to their sacrifices is proud. Our system needs to be reformed and Afghanistan's internal security forces and defense forces are should be removed from the political interference. Generals should do their job, advocacy to the advocates, politics for the politician and the defense of the country for all.

Our rivers’ waters flows toward others. Our waters through floods become the destruction tool as well. In the next ten years, each drop of our water will gain the value of our neighbor’s drops of oil or higher than that. Thus, it is needed that [we] properly manage our water resources.

We don’t have a more comprehensive message than this; we should hear from the innocent children. That what we, the passing generation, done for them and how [we] turn into a bridge. The message of Afghanistan’s children is the failed result of our past.

This is not the matter what legacy I have inherited; the history will judge it what changes we will bring to this legacy. At any cost, [we] will make this legacy a good one for future.
