U.S. soldiers doing heroic deeds

The Washington Times

Washington, DC, Jun. 5 (UPI) -- U.S. soldiers are conducting heroic operations in Afghanistan to make the country and the world a safer place, says an Afghan diplomat.

In a letter to newspaper editors, Ambassador Sa'id Tayeb Jawad said the U.S.-led coalition forces are helping provide the environment needed for strengthening security and democracy in Afghanistan.

Afghanistan, he saisd, had already made significant progress in building democratic institutions and strengthening the rule of law.

Said Jawad: "Never before have Afghans been as hopeful as now about their future. Some 2.5 million Afghan refugees have returned home. Thousands of internally displaced persons have gone back to their villages and begun normal life."

He said Afghanistan also experienced 30 percent economic growth last year, continuing at 20 percent this year.
