UN promises to be sincere Afghan partner

Feb 15, 2014 - 12:03

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman on Saturday promised the worldinfo-icon body will continue to be Afghanistaninfo-icon’s close, reliable and sincere partner.

Concluding a two-day visit to Afghanistan, he discussed different aspects of the UN support to Afghanistan and its people at the time of the elections, as the country is going through political and security transitions.

He also paid a brief visit to the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif, where he met with UN staff and Balkh Governor Atta Mohammad Noor.

It was Feltman’s first visit to Afghanistan since assuming the UN’s top political position on July 2, 2012. He largely focused on familiarising himself with the work of UNAMA.

He met officials of the Independent Election Commission (IECinfo-icon), Independent Electoral Complaints Commission (IECC), the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission and the diplomatic corps in Kabul.
