In National Day Message, Ambassador Haidari Praises Sri Lanka's Post-Independence Progress
I am pleased to extend my best wishes to the friendly people and Government of Sri Lanka on the 73rd Anniversary of the Sri Lankan Independence Day.
Indeed, Sri Lanka has come a long way since its Independence, having emerged as a vibrant democracy and rapidly developing nation in South Asia. It has done so, following its successful defeat of terrorism that destabilized this beautiful island-nation for too long.
Afghanistan is inspired by Sri Lanka’s continued progress, as we look forward to further expanding our growing bilateral ties in all areas of win-win cooperation. I also take this opportunity to wish Sri Lanka success in its efforts to recover from the economic impact of the COVID-19 as soon as possible.
Long live the growing Afghanistan-Sri Lanka friendship!
Ambassador M. Ashraf Haidari
