Afghanistan humaniste









I apologize to all those who have sent me emails and left me messages that I have not been able to respond individually, due to my busy schedule and lack of technological expertise.


Let me clarify at the outset that I am not funded by or beholden to any political, ethnic, religious, institutional, or governmental group.


1.      To all those who have had the kindness to congratulate me on my nomination and to wish me good luck: what is most important is not one’s position, but what one does with one’s position.  I hope to be able to work without impediment on behalf of all the Afghan people.   To paraphrase a famous figure of the 1960’s, we should not ask what Afghanistan can do for us, but what we can do for Afghanistan.


2.      To all those who have asked, the conference which will take place on February 26 will be recorded, and audiotapes will be available for those who cannot attend.


I would like to take the opportunity to thank those who have taken the trouble to attend the conferences before now, as well as those who have contacted me with their regrets.
