Ambassador’s Message

Dear readers,

Welcome to the official website of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in Oslo.

I am greatly honored to be appointed the fifth Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the I.R. of Afghanistan to the Kingdom of Norway and non-resident Ambassador to Denmark and Iceland. I appreciate the trust and confidence conferred upon me by the government of Afghanistan in representing my country in this dynamic and important region.

I have the privilege of representing Afghanistan at a time when our international relationships are more important than ever.

Norway and Afghanistan have, for close to six decades, enjoyed friendly and cordial relations. The Afghanistan-Norway Strategic Partnership agreement, signed in 2014 and renewed in 2017, demonstrates the mutual commitment between our countries, and highlights our mutual determination to continue cooperating in issues of security, development, governance and rule of law, economic cooperation and migration.

More broadly, the Nordic countries have made considerable contributions to our country’s goal of achieving a democratic, inclusive, safe and prosperous society.

Denmark is a valuable partner and a key contributor in the areas of development and security. Denmark’s assistance is also an important of the international community’s engagement for a more secure, more peaceful and stable society.

Iceland has been a close and steadfast partner of Afghanistan in the last years. Iceland has been engaged in development, women’s rights and children’s rights projects; and has provided key assistance during natural disasters.

We appreciate the support and contributions rendered so far, which has helped enable the emergence of a new Afghanistan where democratic values and principles have taken root and a new dynamic generation is steadily taking charge of their country’s future. We look forward to continue this partnership in order to sustain such significant achievements, provide more and better opportunities, counter common challenges and achieve our shared objectives.

I am determined to keep strengthening the longstanding cordial bilateral relations and strategic partnership between our countries, working in close collaboration across all areas of importance.

During my tenure, I aim to further enhance the cooperation between our governments in all sectors, including public diplomacy, peace diplomacy, trade and economic relations. I also strive to facilitate the interaction between civil society organizations and promote cultural activities that showcase the rich culture and history of Afghanistan.

Our Embassy team works to bring Norway, Denmark, Iceland and Afghanistan closer together and provide the best possible consular services to our Afghan compatriots. I invite you to read more about our initiatives, events and consular services.
