20/11/2014  Lithuania's statement at the UN General Assembly's debate on the situation in Afghanistan

Mr. President,

Allow me to thank Germany and other states for having prepared the draft resolution on the situation in Afghanistan. Lithuania looks forward to its unanimous adoption.

This year has presented a number of challenges to the Afghan nation which it has successfully met. The presidential elections marked the first democratic transition in the modern history of Afghanistan. Moreover, the elections took place at a time when the Afghan national security forces assumed their responsibilities for safeguarding the country. Although the situation remains fragile, the successful completion of these processes proves the willingness and capability of Afghanistan to continue on its path towards creating a stable, peaceful and prosperous country where every man, woman and child can feel safe and secure.
