U.S. Embassy Statement on the Occasion of Eid Al-Adha

September 23, 2015

The U.S. Embassy in Kabul extends its best wishes to the people of Afghanistan on the occasion of Eid al-Adha. Again this year thousands of Afghans have attended the annual Hajj pilgrimage, with millions of Muslims from around the world, and they will soon begin returning home with a message of peace, dedication, and compassion. Millions of American Muslims, like their Afghan brothers and sisters, mark Eid by reaching out to those in need and celebrating in the company of their family and friends.

As stated at the recent Senior Officials Meeting held by the Government of Afghanistan and the donor community in Kabul, the United States will continue to support the people of Afghanistan and their government as they work to build a prosperous future for their country. Once again, we wish you a joyous and peaceful Eid al-Adha!
