Afghanistan on the path to transition

 
Jan Kubis heads the UN mission in Afghanistan

Afghanistan will soon begin a period of transition and transformation.

Starting in 2014, the Afghan forces will be fully responsible for security as the international military presence in the country winds down. Civilian functions related to governance and provision of social and development service will also be handed over to the national authorities.

Ján Kubiš, head of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), told the Security Council that the UN's work there must evolve to reflect and support this new reality.
