Statement by Ambassador Cunningham upon the Signature of Agreement on a National Unity Government
I congratulate Dr. Abdullah Abdullah and Dr. Ashraf Ghani on reaching agreement on the formation of a national unity government. Both leaders have demonstrated genuine statesmanship and their commitment to build a strong and legitimate government that represents all Afghans, and which turns from political competition to cooperation. They are to be commended for putting the people of Afghanistan first, and for agreeing on the way ahead.
This critical point in Afghanistan’s history demands that all Afghans, and especially their political, religious, and civil society leaders, come together in support of the new president, the chief executive officer, and their teams as they build a government based on genuine partnership. The United States looks forward to close cooperation with the new President and his government as they build on the progress which Afghanistan has achieved. We stand with the Afghan people, and will continue to support the country’s security forces, governmental institutions, and economic development.
