His Excellency

Dr Abdullah Abdullah,

Chief Executive of

Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, Kabul


Your Excellency,

Please accept my sincere congratulations on your appointment as Chief Executive Officer of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and on the announcement of Government of National Unity.

Reaching an agreement on the formation of a Government of National Unity has required extraordinary statesmanship and courage.  I would like to commend you and Dr. Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai for putting the interest of the Afghan people above all and for your commitment to build a government based on partnership and national unity.

Denmark sees Afghanistan as an important partner and remains committed to supporting the further stabilization and development of Afghanistan.  We look forward to close cooperation with you and the new Government of National Unity.


Yours sincerely


Helle Thorning-Schmidt
