Afghanistan – Announcement of the 3rd phase of the transition (May 14, 2012)
We’ve taken note of the announcements made yesterday by Afghan President Hamid Karzai regarding the continuation of the transition in Afghanistan, including in Kapisa where the French army is operating.
France congratulates President Karzai and the Afghan government on these decisions which build on the Afghan president’s visit in January when the treaty of friendship and cooperation between our two countries was signed. These decisions also reflect the progress observed on the ground through the concerted action of the ISAF forces and the Afghan security forces.
On the eve of the NATO summit in Chicago, they mark an important new stage in the process to allow the Afghans to assume full responsibility for the security of their territory.
