UK recognized Afghan independence
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On August 19, 1919, the UK recognized the independence of Afghanistan and set the border between it and British India in the Treaty of Rawalpindi. The treaty had been signed earlier in the month following the Third Anglo-Afghan War. The date is celebrated in Afghanistan as the country's independence day.
