Media & Public Relations Department

The Media Relations Department at the Embassy ensures that, as a post-conflict country with an extremely challenging state-building process, Afghanistan remains a subject of public dialogue. In courting the media spotlight, the Media Relations Department helps sustain popular international support for Afghanistan and the commitment of the international community to the country’s long-term reconstruction. The Media Relations Department regularly engages the press to ensure that their coverage of Afghanistan remains accurate and truthful, while ensuring that the good news about Afghanistan’s achievements is not ignored. Furthermore, the Media Relations Department ensures that the Afghan Government’s perspective is articulated by the Ambassador or other Embassy Officials in print, radio and television news programs. The Media Relations Department facilitates briefings and assistance for journalists traveling to Afghanistan.

The Media Relations Department also facilitates media coverage of Embassy events and official visitations of Government of Afghanistan officials. Media Advisories and Press Releases are drafted and disseminated as necessary to announce Embassy events or GoA achievements. The MR Department regularly monitors the media to study press coverage of Afghanistan and initiate response if necessary via interviews, press meetings, or articles for publication. The Media Relations Department is intimately involved with the drafting and updating of content for the Embassy’s newsletter and website.
