UNAMA Chief Hails NUG’s Reform Policy

KABUL - The two day Senior Officials Meeting wrapped up in Kabul on Thursday where representatives of the international community reaffirmed their longstanding support to Afghanistan’s long term development, peace and stability.
The senior officials and international delegations met to review progress, achievements and challenges in implementing the Brussels commitments and the Afghanistan National Peace and Development Framework (ANPDF).
“Today’s meeting is part of a larger conversation about how Afghanistan can be an effective partner with the international community to build a better future for our children, a future that is free from terrorism and violence,” said President Ashraf Ghani.
Meanwhile, Tadamichi Yamamoto, the head of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) has said that government’s reform agenda deserves recognition.
“On behalf of the United Nations, I appreciate the frank exchanges we have had with the President and his team, and I affirm our commitment to continuously advancing our efforts to deliver as one UN, in line with the development aspirations so vividly put forward in the ANPDF,” said Yamamoto, who stressed that real change is complex and takes time.
“In the ANPDF, the government  links development progress to Afghans’ right, their demand, to live in a country that is at peace and on the road to self-reliance,” he said. “I challenge all of the partners, activists, business men and women, and officials here to consider each element of our work through the lens of its contribution to peace; if we can do that, we can contribute to the future that Afghans envision, and with which all of us in the international community wish to see Afghanistan succeed.” (Tolonews)
