Statement of the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan about recent events in Spain

October 11, 2017

KABUL – Rule of law has been a major accomplishment of the people and government of Spain after the dictatorship. Upholding of the constitution, therefore, is the duty and obligation of the Government- made necessary by the recent events in Catalonia.

The government of Spain has been a solid partner of the people of Afghanistan, with some Spanish soldiers paying the ultimate sacrifice. At this critical historical moment, the government of Afghanistan reiterates its full support for the government of Spain.

We express full confidence in the ability of the Spanish government to defend the constitutional order and, thereby guarantee the rights and freedom of all its citizens.
