Unity Govt. Manages  to Move Forward, Kept Hope Alive: Kerry

WASHINGTON - US Secretary of State John Kerry has said the Afghan Unity Government kept hope alive in Afghanistan, despite facing difficulties and challenges.
“We played a pivotal role in forging a national unity government in Afghanistan that, while still facing challenges, has kept alive the chance for future progress,” Kerry told reporters during his final press conference as Secretary of State on Thursday.
Kerry had played an instrumental role in the formation of the unity government led by President Ashraf Ghani and CEO Dr Abdullah Abdullah.
“We all know how difficult that could have been when an election had serious problems, and the country was poised to perhaps see the government fall apart and maybe even enter into civil war,” he noted.
“And yet we helped to broker and pull together the parties into a unity government that still today is managing to move forward in Afghanistan,” Kerry said as he mentioned Afghanistan as one of the key focus areas of the eight years of Obama Administration. (Pajhwok)
