Statement by U.S. Ambassador P. Michael McKinley on the Occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr (July 16, 2015)

July 16, 2015

On behalf of the American people and the U.S. government, I would like to extend my best wishes to the people of Afghanistan on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr.  Today the Afghan people celebrate the end of the holy month of Ramadan, a month of devotion and self-reflection celebrated by millions of Muslims in the U.S. and throughout the world.  On this joyous occasion, I would like to restate our commitment to support the Afghan people and government as they strive to achieve peace and prosperity for their country.
