UNSC Underscores International Commitment to Afghanistan: Khalilzad

U.S. Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad said the United Nations Security Council’s (UNSC) statement on Afghanistan’s peace negotiations underscores international commitment to Afghanistan’s “sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity and national unity.”

In a series of tweets on Saturday, Khalilzad said the UNSC statement supports the path the parties are currently on, which is to “find a political settlement that accommodates all Afghans, one the region and international community can endorse in spirit and in action.”

“This is a unique moment for Afghanistan… This unique opportunity must be seized,” he said.

“Not only are Afghan parties negotiating directly, but as indicated by the UNSC statement, there is broad international support for a negotiated political settlement and peace in Afghanistan,” he added.
