Dear Friends,

I would like to welcome you to the new website of Embassy of Afghanistan in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan. It is my great pleasure to take on the role as the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan Ambassador to Turkmenistan at such an integral time. I am looking forward to continue working in collaboration with our brotherly and friendly partner Turkmenistan to further strengthen our existing productive and constructive relationship in solidifying peace, security, boost our economic ties and expand our regional cooperation.

I am excited to begin my tenure as the Afghanistan’s Ambassador with such an outstanding team. The Embassy’s staff come from a diverse background and brings about a unique set of inter-personal skills with cross cultural experiences, who are all ready to represent Afghanistan in Turkmenistan in a variety of ways. When we look back, we see a history of friendship and partnering encounters between the nations of Afghanistan and Turkmenistan.

Afghanistan and Turkmenistan have enjoyed decades of remarkable relationship and have partnered in many aspects, including mutual respect towards sovereignty and principles of foreign policy. Moving forward, Afghanistan is focused in strengthening its economic cooperation, and protecting our 744 km shared borders from the illegal movement of weapon and drugs, while promoting lawful entry and exists, which is essential to Afghanistan and Turkmenistan’s security, economic prosperity, and national sovereignty.

My mission as the Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan to Turkmenistan consists of the following: First, to foster the solid partnership between the governments of Afghanistan and Turkmenistan. Second, I am keen to promote foreign investments and facilitate reconstruction activities in Afghanistan. Third, I would like to encourage, and accelerate the implementation of regional projects like, Turkmenistan-Afghanistan- Pakistan-India (TAPI) pipeline, Lapis Lazuli Route, Railroad, and Energy Transmission. Successful implantations of mentioned projects will have significant economic impacts on countries involved; these projects will also create business opportunities in the region. Afghanistan is ready to play its role as a bridge in connecting Central Asia to South Asia, particularly connecting Turkmenistan to growing South Asian market.

We looking forward to communicate and provide information opportunities in Afghanistan and services Afghanistan Embassy is providing to Afghan citizens, and Turkmenistan citizens. We also welcome all Turkmenistan businesses, foreign investments, and non-profit institutions to participate in improving Afghanistan’s economy, health, and education, which will have a tremendous impact on sustaining peace, security, and democracy of Afghanistan. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are interested in working or investing in Afghanistan.
