NUG Committed to Delivering on Past Promises: Abdullah

KABUL - Addressing the closing ceremony of the third Senior Officials Meeting (SOM) in Kabul on Thursday, Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah said the National Unity Government is committed to delivering on all commitments made over the past three years.
“Let me assure you that the National Unity Government is committed to deliver, in the timeliest fashion possible, on all the commitments made over the last three years. These commitments are all geared towards making Afghanistan a better governed and more self-reliant country, which is the wish of every Afghan,” he said.
He said reforms top the Afghan government’s agenda.
“Over the last three years, despite a challenging environment, the NUG has put the reform agenda at the heart of its strategic planning. Fighting corruption, enhancing service delivery, improving governance and rule of law, empowering women and private sector are the priorities,” he stated.
He praised the Afghan Security and Defense Forces, saying that “the efforts of government are stepping toward ending the conflict imposed on the people.”
“The ANDSF, more professional and accountable than ever, is the backbone to our strategy to bring security to the country,” he said.
He said the mission carried out under Resolute Support is critical, adding that “the training, advising, assisting, equipping and mentoring that will be provided based on conditions and not timelines are welcomed”.
Meanwhile, he appreciated the media role in portraying the National Unity Government’s activities. “I also greatly appreciate the support we have received from the members of the media, in covering our activities,” Abdullah added.

The third Senior Officials Meeting witnessed continued commitments from the international community to Afghanistan and also the National Unity Government’s commitment to the world.  (Tolonews)
