"I would like to take this opportunity to express staunch support for you and the citizens of your country who are working for peace, democracy and economic well-being at a time of utmost importance to Afghanistan. It was quite recently that Lithuania, too, was faced with the challenging tasks of strengthening the state and enhancing national and social unity and therefore I would like to wish you courage and wisdom on this difficult path," President Grybauskaitė wrote in her letter of congratulations.
Dalia Grybauskaitė noted that it was symbolic that Afghan Independence Day almost coincided with the presidential elections. She further underlined that President Karzai's active and dynamic work inspired the citizens of Afghanistan to seek resolutely the ultimate ideals of democracy and freedom, expressing her firm belief that the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, which was celebrating the 90th Anniversary of Independence, would pursue these goals even more strongly.
