Afghanistan UN Mandate Focus on Development

The United Nations Representative to Afghanistan Made point to distance UN efforts from "recent events" (as Koran burning and US Soldier murdering 16 civilians including 9 children). Rather, focus will be on development and rule of law.

The transition process in Afghanistan remains on track despite recent tragic incidents, the United Nations envoy to the country said today, adding that efforts continue to strengthen the capacity of national institutions to maintain rule of law and provide services to the population.

"Recent events should not overshadow positive trends and developments," said Jan Kubiš, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General and head of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), in a briefing to the Security Council.
