UNAMA chief calls for peace during Ramadan

UNAMA chief calls for peace during Ramadan

Jul 08, 2013 - 14:47

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): An Afghanistaninfo-icon at peace with itself would at long last respond to the people’s hopes of better lives for themselves and their children, the United Nations top diplomat in the country said on Monday.

“I sincerely hope that the occasion of this Ramadaninfo-icon, observed in a spirit of peace and compassion, can in its own way help pave the way for this long-cherished goal,” the UN secretary-general’s special representative said.

In his message on the eve of the holy month of Ramadan, United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) head Jan Kubis congratulated the Afghan people and government and wished them peace and happiness.

“Afghanistan has endured more than three decades of violence and is undergoing a political and security transition which is vital to its future development,” he said in the message released by the UN mission.

“I take the opportunity to also call upon all parties to the conflict to respect the sanctity of this month and allow Afghan families to worship and celebrate in peace,” he added.

Along with the United Nations family in the country, the mission continued to stand with the people of Afghanistan in their quest for security, stability and prosperity, he added.
