During a Board of Governors meeting held on Thursday 25 July 2019, H.E. Ambassador Khojesta Fana on behalf of the people and government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan paid her respects to Director General Yukiya Amano, who passed away last week.
Director General Amano was a great advocator for security, nuclear non-proliferation regime and peaceful use of nuclear technologies to achieving a more peaceful world.
Afghanistan is grateful to IAEA, under the Director General Amano’s leadership, for its significant support to the country.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Director General Amano’s family and friends.
