Ambassador’s Welcome Message

Hello and welcome to the website of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in Washington, D.C. I am Ambassador Hamdullah Mohib and on behalf of everyone here at the embassy, we are so glad you stopped by.

As Afghanistan’s ambassador to the United States, it is my great honor to spend every day in this post working to strengthen the mutual partnership between America and Afghanistan, and to promote understanding and appreciation between our two peoples. Americans and Afghans have more in common than most people realize. We both have a strong work ethic, protect and cherish our families, recognize the value of education, and are guided by our faith.
