Ambassador Haidari Speaks at the SAARC Chamber of Commerce and Industry Commemoration of the SAARC Charter Day

Colombo: - Ambassador M. Ashraf Haidari joined HE Foreign Minister Dinesh Gunawardena, SAARC diplomats, and business leaders to deliver remarks at the 35th SAARC Charter Day commemoration hosted by SAARC Chamber of Commerce and Industry on December 11, 2019.

They reflected on the vision of the founders of SAARC when they established this much needed regional grouping to cooperate in good faith for the common peace, prosperity, and welfare of the entire region with 24% (1.8 billion) population of the whole world. Ambassador Haidari highlighted the key obstacles that continue preventing South Asia from realizing its many potentials that must be harnessed for the sustainable development of the whole region.

In this light, the Heart of Asia - Istanbul Process as an Afghan-led initiative encourages regional cooperation against confrontation, which Ambassador Haidari discusses in his recent article on "Securing South Asia Through Regional Economic Integration."
