Afghanistan – Formation of a national unity government (January 12, 2015)


France welcomes the formation on January 12 of a national unity government in Afghanistan.

Following the presidential elections in 2014, the appointment of the new members of government represents an important milestone in Afghanistan’s political transition. Together with its partners, France will continue to assist and support the new government in its efforts to implement the reform plan presented at the conference in London on December 4, 2014.

France reaffirms its support for Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, Chief Executive Officer Abdullah Abdullah, as well as for all of the new members of the national unity government.
