Ambassador Khojesta Fana Ebrahimkhel expressed high appreciation to Ambassador H.E. Mr. Igli Hasani and the Albanian Chairmanship for their initiative in dedicating a Permanent Council Meeting to the OSCE Asian Partners for Co-Operation. The Permanent Council Meeting was an opportunity to review the OSCE Cooperation with Asian Partners and to take stock and discuss our achievements as well as to collectively identify our common prospects.
Afghanistan appreciates the close relationship and partnership with the OSCE since being granted the status of partner State in the year 2003. This partnership has been continuously expanded and Afghanistan has greatly benefited from its engagement with the organization.
Afghanistan strongly believes in the relevance of a stronger OSCE’s partnership with Afghanistan. Afghanistan stands ready to further look into a more strategic approach to the OSCE’s co-operation with Afghanistan. Establishing more continuity and a more long-term strategic outlook in our relationship will help us achieve sustainable development and comprehensive security.
Ambassador Khojesta Fana Ebrahimkhel commends the progress achieved so far by the Asian Partners for Co-operation group in the OSCE and Afghanistan is committed to develop and strengthen long-term cooperation with the OSCE.
