26 November 2020

On 24 November, His Highness reaffirmed his enduring commitment to a peaceful and pluralistic Afghanistan. In a statement delivered at the virtually held 2020 Afghanistan Conference, His Highness noted that as the country entered into a new period of transition, it would need the contribution of all of its people to address their common challenges: rising poverty, climate disruption, an unforgiving pandemic. "It will need all their talents to build an inclusive future with more opportunities, requiring more education, more knowledge, more private initiative. In these endeavors, AKDN is, and will remain, a steadfast partner, said His Highness, emphasizing that AKDN will maintain the breadth of its work in all sectors from education, healthcare and cultural restoration, as well as in economic development.
