Transition in Afghanistan is not only about security: UN envoy
Afghanistan is at a "crossroads" between continuing conflict and a political inclusive dialogue as international forces begin to gradually pull out of the country.
That's what the head of the United Nations mission in Afghanistan, Staffan de Mistura, told the Security Council as he briefed it on Wednesday.
The country, which continues to battle Taliban fighters, is being assisted by the International Security Assistance Force, led by NATO.
Mr. de Mistura said that the transition towards Afghanistan's full sovereignty is on track.
"Transition cannot be and should not be only security. It needs to be a transition to something that the Afghan people recognize and identify with. That's why we are working together in order to ensure that there is also socio, economic and, frankly, human rights aspects linked to the transition." (Duration: 19")
