On June 29, 2017, the United States Institute of Peace unveiled a Wall of Honor to commemorate Ahmed Abid Al-Aziz Al-Dori and Osama Dori of Iraq, and Naqib Ahmad Khpulwak of Afghanistan.
Ambassador Hamdullah Mohib told attendees that Khpulwak was an example to many. Khpulwak lived his life with passion and worked for peace. Ambassador Mohib expressed his appreciation to USIP for honoring Phulwak, recognizing that it allows people to truly know his story, even after his sacrifice for his country.
Ambassador Mohib concluded with stating the importance of peace, not just in Afghanistan, but all around the world. He said, “while Phulwak may not be the last star on the wall, it is my hope that this is the beginning of the end for this conflict”.
