On behalf of the Afghan people and government, I express my deepest condolences to the family of Her Excellency Barbara Prammer and to the people and government of Austria on the untimely loss of an outstanding leader who committed her life to the people of Austria and to important political matters of global significance.
Afghanistan remembers a proven friend of our country and a strong advocate of international cooperation, especially when it came to developing countries such as Afghanistan. In particular, the women of Afghanistan will always value her as a symbol of vigorous struggle for gender equality and universal women’s rights.
Let me reaffirm Afghanistan’s appreciation for the friendship between our two countries and our two peoples. As Austria bids farewell to the beloved Barbara Prammer, we join you in honoring her great commitment to her country.
