Afghan Ambassador Said Tayed Jawad this week began publishing a biweekly newsletter "to inform the public of Afghan Embassy activities and the process of rebuilding Afghanistan."
The first edition features news on Mr. Jawad's meeting with Mexican President Vincente Fox to present his diplomatic credentials as a non-resident ambassador.

"I am privileged to convey the warm wishes of President [Hamid] Karzai and the people of Afghanistan to the president and people of Mexico at this crucial juncture of our history," Mr. Jawad said.

After the diplomatic introduction, the ambassador made a pitch for foreign investment. He promoted the "tremendous investment opportunities" in Afghanistan three years after the United States liberated the country from the brutal rule of the Taliban regime, which sheltered Osama bin Laden.

Mr. Jawad this month also signed four agreements with the World Bank to provide $200 million in development aid.

"These major credits and grants, which consists of 50 percent of the World Bank's entire grants and credits to needy countries, signify the confidence of the international community in the Afghan government and the future of our country," he said.
