South and Central Asian Affairs: Afghanistan Reconstruction

The U.S. remains committed to working with President Karzai and his team as they build the institutions of government and bring the benefits of peace and stability to every region of Afghanistan. A key priority of our assistance is to help the Afghan Government rebuild the infrastructure and institutions of Afghanistan.

Minister Raheen, Minister Shahrani, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen. It is a great honor, as well as a pleasure, for me to be here today as a witness to the reopening of the historic Shah Shahid Shrine. This holy site serves as a focal point for the community, a place where the men and women of Kabul come both to pray, and to celebrate the Afghan New Year. The Shad Shahid Shrine remains an important tie to Afghanistan's past.  But it is also a testament to your country's commitment to a peaceful and prosperous future. This rebuilding highlights Afghanistan's strong commitment to building a bright future on the foundations of a venerable past. (more)
