The Embassy and Permanent Mission of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in Vienna hosted an event celebrating the 100 years anniversary of independence of Afghanistan. The event commenced with the national anthems of Austria and Afghanistan and a statement was made by Ms. Soraya Malek, the granddaughter of King Amanullah. She warmly welcomed the audience and highlighted in her speech that “the memory of Amanullah, the King that attempted to modernize and reform the country—and who paid the consequences for his efforts—is still limpid, undisputed and a source of great inspiration.”
Referring to the 100 years Anniversary of the Independence of Afghanistan, Ambassador Ebrahimkhel highlighted that the National Day is not only a date for us but a new commitment for contribution and the right time to thank friends and allies for their friendship, support, and cooperation.
As a token of appreciation for everyone that is involved and has a passion for Afghanistan, a photo exhibition, a fashion show of typical Afghan costumes, and a traditional Afghan dinner buffet were presented.
