Tahir Qadiry

Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan to the Republic of Poland

At a time when international troops are set to withdraw from Afghanistan, Central Europe’s engagement under the NATO umbrella in the country has created significant opportunities for further cooperation and trade. Ambassador Tahir Qadiry reflects on Afghanistan’s changed standing in the world and what a new chapter in the partnership with the country’s allies should comprise to tailor for success in the next years.

Afghanistan has tread a unique and exemplary trajectory in the 21st century that has invariably set the baseline in itself.

Since 2001, after the fall of the Taliban regime, the country has witnessed continued epochal events. Despite numerous adversities and challenges, it kept building upon these events. Those watersheds include establishing democracy, constitutional supremacy and following these tenets, the setting up of various vital social, political, economic and cultural institutions.

Undoubtedly, the aspirations were reinvigorated immediately post-2001 firstly because the Afghans were fed up with the never-ending ugly wars and their anticipation of the future society and secondly, because of the vital, committed and steadfast support of our international allies.
