On March 24, 2016, the Embassy and Permanent Mission of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan participated in a Nowruz Celebration Event at the United Nations in Vienna. The event gave an opportunity for countries that celebrate Nowruz to demonstrate the richness of their cultures through displaying handicrafts, traditional clothing and by serving a variety of traditional food. During the event, two Afghan musicians, Mr. Sobeir Bachtiar and Mr. Karimi, played traditional Robab and Tabla. The Embassy and Permanent Mission of Afghanistan displayed handicrafts including rugs, traditional clothing, and jewelry amongst other items to demonstrate the richness of the art and culture of Afghanistan. In addition to this, several popular Afghan food dishes were served, such as Qabuli Palaw, which received much praise from those attending the event.
