Condolence Message by President Ashraf Ghani on Demise of India’s Former Minister of External Affairs

I was profoundly saddened to hear that former Minister of External Affairs of India and a senior member of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Sushma Swaraj has passed away.

Mrs. Swaraj as one of the most prominent and pioneering politicians of India had shown remarkable dedication to serve her country and people. I am confident the Indian nation will always remember her for her significant achievements and contributions.

She was a good friend of Afghanistan and always aspired the best for the Afghan people. At this moment of tragedy, I share the Indian nation’s grief while my thoughts are with her family. On behalf of the Afghan government and nation, I extend my heartfelt sympathies to the President, Prime Minister and the people of India.

I wish good health for President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi and further prosperity and progress for the great nation of India.
