It is with great honor that the Permanent Mission extends its warmest congratulations and best wishes, on behalf of Ambassador Adela Raz and the team at the delegation, to our partners and fellow citizens on the occasion of the one hundred and first anniversary of Afghanistan’s independence. On this occasion, we celebrate Afghanistan’s noble and courageous history and achievements.
One hundred and one years ago, the people of Afghanistan, under the leadership of Shah Ghāzī Amānullāh Khān, gained their independence. This day is a historic occasion to remember the brave women and men who struggled for independence and those who sacrificed their lives in the name of freedom, peace, security, and lasting stability in Afghanistan. We pay tribute to all the martyrs and patriots who sacrificed their lives for the independence of Afghanistan and further commend our security and defense forces who continue to work for lasting peace and freedom. The Permanent Mission extends its wish for peace and prosperity throughout Afghanistan.
