The Head of the Diplomatic Mission in Afghanistan knows that he can count on a heritage of mutual respect and admiration, nurtured by Italy's 20-year commitment to civil and military cooperation, the strong diplomatic relations established a century ago and the ancient historical ties, fueled over time by the meritorious work and sacrifice of our compatriots.

Our shared path, consistent with the line agreed within the European Union, is to ensure that Afghanistan, through an Afghan-owned and Afghan-led dialogue, is a peaceful and stable country where every component of the population can contribute to social and economic growth.

The achievement of this goal will unleash new opportunities for cooperation. Italian productive system, with its heritage of knowledge and innovation, can offer useful solutions in many areas, in continuity with the wide range of development interventions, concluded and ongoing, for large infrastructures, support for agriculture and the private sector, preservation of cultural heritage, development of the judiciary, impulse to gender equality.

In this evolving dynamic, the Embassy in Kabul is called upon to implement foreign policy guidelines and to coordinate the action of the other Italian actors operating in the country, as well as to play a proactive role and to develop new projects for the further growth and expansion of relations with Afghanistan in the years to come.




Ambassador Vittorio Sandalli
