US Supports Everyone Who Works to Build Afghanistan

US Supports Everyone Who Works to Build Afghanistan

KABUL - US ambassador says his country is committed to helping everyone in the society who wants to build a future Afghanistan in which everyone can live in peace.
The United States Ambassador to Afghanistan John R. Bass said Washington supports any efforts and anyone who helps for development of Afghanistan.
“This is a great day for this university, for all of the graduates and for Afghanistan. The United States is committed to helping Afghanistan succeed. It is committed to helping everyone in the society who wants to build a future Afghanistan in which everyone can live in peace,” the ambassador said at a graduation ceremony of American University of Afghanistan’s (AUAF) students on Friday.
The AUAF President Kenneth Holland meanwhile said the university continues its efforts to train young leaders for the future of Afghanistan and that they will contribute to the country’s development and prosperity. 
“We are trying to train the future leaders of Afghanistan and give them the skills they need to solve the problems of the country to bring peace, democracy, human rights and prosperity to Afghanistan,” said Holland.
“The main objective of the university and students is to pull Afghanistan out of the current situation,” Sharif Fayez, AUAF founder, said.
The students got diplomas from political science, technology and business administration. They said they will contribute in Afghanistan’s reconstruction.
“Students from around the country are learning here and all are trying to find a better way for a better tomorrow,” a graduate of political science said.
“Our goal is to lead Afghanistan from the current situation to development using the knowledges we learned here,” a graduate said.
Two years ago, militants attacked the AUAF compound in which 16 teachers and students lost their lives and over 40 others were injured.
Breshna Musazai, a female student of the university, was injured in the attack. She was treated, but the incident left her with disability. Despite that, she continued her higher education at the AUAF and was one of those who were graduated on Friday.
“I was thinking that I would not be able to continue my lessons, but I had the support of my family and the university personnel. Today I am happy for getting my diploma,” said Musazai.   (Tolo news)
