Ambassador Khojesta Fana Ebrahimkhel met with the Director-General of the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD), Dr. Michael Spindelegger, for a highly productive exchange.
The Government of Afghanistan and ICMPD enjoy an excellent and longstanding relation. The excellent collaboration between Afghanistan and the organization dates back to 2010. ICMPD serves as a platform for informal consultations, provides expertise and services in the area of multilateral cooperation on migration and asylum issues, and promotes innovative, comprehensive and sustainable migration policies. Afghanistan, like many other countries, counts the ICMPD as one of its stalwart supporters in the area of refugees and migration.
The ICMPD also plays host to the annual Vienna Migration Conference (VMC). Ambassador wished the best of luck to all ICMPD staff for the preparatory activities and processes leading up to the VMC of 2019, where the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan plans to be in attendance.
Ambassador thanked the Director-General Michael Spindelegger and his dedicated team for their efforts and continuous engagement and stated her sincere desire to further strengthen the cordial relations, both personal and official between ICMPD and the Afghan mission.
