AACC Founder Hamed Wardak

In addition to leading his Afghan movement for change, “Sacrificers for Peace,” (Fedayeen-e-Sol), Hamed Wardak is also one of the founders of the Afghan-American Chamber of Commerce.

Wardak is striving to encourage a strong relationship between the United States and Afghanistan, and to encourage the U.S. to help Afghanistan overcome their Islamic political rivals who Wardak says are backed by Iran.

“Right now our allies, the Americans and our European friends, focus on state institution development, you don’t have anything politically. But our neighboring countries, particularly Iran, are focused on creating a movement, a political apparatus on the ground,” he said. “Our movement believes that the American and allied long-term presence is vital and desirable for building a stable and democratic order,”

he added.
