Consul General Manawi’s message on the occasion of Canada Day
Message from the Consul General of Afghanistan on the occasion of Canada Day:
Warm greetings and heartfelt congratulations on the joyous occasion of Canada Day. This day marks a significant milestone in Canada's history, celebrating the values of liberty, diversity, and unity that define this great nation. This momentous day allows us to celebrate the remarkable achievements and the enduring spirit of the Canadian people throughout Canada’s history.
As we commemorate Canada day, it is essential to reflect upon the enduring bond of friendship and cooperation between our two nations. Our nations have witnessed the bravery and selflessness of those who dedicated their lives to upholding the principles of justice, freedom, peace, and human dignity. In the face of adversity, they displayed unwavering resolve, demonstrating the true essence of courage and commitment. We also appreciate Canada’s previous unwavering support and assistance to Afghanistan in various areas, including education, healthcare, democracy, counter-terrorism, women empowerment, and economic development. Canada's commitment to Afghanistan's stability and prosperity remains crucial.
Given the the current circumstances, Canada's continued support for democratic processes in Afghanistan will be critical. We value Canada's advocacy for the voices and aspirations of the Afghan people, ensuring that their will and aspirations are respected when it comes to governance.
We also commend Canada's compassionate response in helping Afghan immigrants and refugees during these challenging times. Canada’s commitment to resettling Afghan refugees, especially in the wake of the events of August 2021, demonstrates the true spirit of compassion and solidarity. We express our deepest gratitude to the Canadian people for their generosity, kindness, and willingness to provide a safe and welcoming environment for those seeking refuge.
Furthermore, we acknowledge the invaluable contributions of the Afghan diaspora in Canada. They have played an integral role in building bridges between our nations, enriching Canadian society through their talents, skills, and cultural heritage. Their resilience, determination, and commitment to making a positive difference have strengthened the bonds of friendship between our countries.
On this momentous day, let us reaffirm our shared vision for a future marked by peace, stability, and inclusive development. As we move forward, the Consulate General of Afghanistan remains dedicated to fostering stronger bonds of friendship, understanding, and collaboration between our nations.
Once again, I extend my warmest congratulations to the people of Canada on this joyous occasion. May Canada continue to prosper and thrive, serving as an exemplar of democracy, diversity, and compassion for the world.
