As Afghanistan’s consul general, it is my great honor to serve Afghan people and to spend every moment in this position to strengthen the mutual partnership between Canada and Afghanistan - promote understanding and appreciation between our two nations. As in recent years, the relations between the two countries have grown stronger than ever before, and our team at the Consulate General of Afghanistan in Vancouver will continue to promote the bonds that our countries share.
Along with the entire world, both our countries face challenges, which also belie great opportunities, and I look forward to working with the Canadian people and their leadership to enhance those opportunities and further strengthen our strategic partnership.

Similarly, with gratitude and deep respect, we honor the enormous sacrifices that so many Canadian have made in our shared struggle, especially those men and women who have given their lives in battles against our shared enemies, and I am sure it will continue.
