H.E. Dr. Abdullah Abdullah is the Chief Executive of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. He has held numerous prominent positions during his career. Dr. Abdullah served as spokesperson for the Defense Ministry of Afghanistan in 1992 until he was appointed as Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs in 1996 for the Government of Afghanistan–recognized by the United Nations and the international community as Afghanistan’s legitimate government despite the Taliban occupation of Kabul. In 1998, he assumed the position of Minister of Foreign Affairs, and continued to serve as Foreign Minister in the Interim Administration of Afghanistan led by President Karzai following the historic Intra-Afghan talks in Bonn, Germany. He served as Minister of Foreign Affairs until 2006, leaving his post to serve as Secretary General of the Massoud Foundation. Dr. Abdullah was a candidate for President of Afghanistan in 2009 and 2014. Following the second round of elections in 2014, the Government of National Unity was formed with an agreement, resulting in Dr. Ashraf Ghani serving as President, and Dr. Abdullah as Chief Executive of Afghanistan.Buy tickets/get more info now
