UN welcomes nomination of ministers, senior officials
KABUL (Pajhwok): The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) on Monday welcomed the nomination of ministers and senior officials as an important milestone in implementing the agreement on a national unity government.
UNAMA head Nicholas Haysom said: “The spirit of respectful collaboration demonstrated by President Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive Officer Abdullah Abdullah and their teams in agreeing these nominations is a welcome manifestation of their partnership and cooperation.”
Given the many pressing issues facing Afghanistan, the vote of confidence process could be undertaken in a smooth and timely manner, Haysom hoped in a statement from the UN mission.
“The United Nations remains a committed and reliable partner of Afghanistan and looks forward to working with all new ministers and officials in support of the government’s work,” he promised.
