It is a year to go until Afghanistan’s crucial 2014 elections. The country has made significant progress over the last decade and continues to do so. The UK and international community have made a long term commitment to Afghanistan’s future, but the country continues to face complex social, political and economic challenges. Political reform must continue, leading to more effective and accountable institutions and a cleaner government. A peaceful transition of power in 2014 supported by the majority of Afghans needs to happen through credible and inclusive elections.
Deputy Ambassador Nic Hailey will answer your questions about Afghanistan and the UK’s role in its future live via his twitter channel @nichaileyFCO on Thursday 23 May at 14.30 (AFT) 11.00 (BST). Submit your question using the hashtag #askFCO.
