The UN Under-Secretary-General for Political and Peacebuilding Affairs Rosemary DiCarlo, concluding a three-day visit to Afghanistan, said the UN will not abandon the people of Afghanistan and will support their efforts for building an inclusive, just and peaceful society.

DiCarlo visited Afghanistan from December 7-9 and met with a wide range of the Islamic Emirate representatives, political figures, women leaders, members of civil society and the diplomatic community and reiterated that the UN will continue working in Afghanistan, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan said in a statement.

“The UN has been in Afghanistan since 1949 and, as demonstrated during the recent crisis, we do not intend to abandon the Afghan people,” she said.—AP
