Statement by Special Chargé d’Affaires Ambassador Hugo Llorens on the Passing of Nancy Dupree

We are deeply saddened by the loss of Nancy Dupree, a pillar of the American community in Afghanistan for many decades, whose love for this country and dedication to its culture and history will be forever remembered.  Ms. Dupree worked tirelessly for the preservation of history and culture in Afghanistan since she arrived in 1962.  Future generations will remember Ms. Dupree as a wonderful example of the strength of U.S.-Afghanistan relations and friendship.  May we honor her example in decades to come by working for a common goal of building lasting franternal ties between our nations.
