Der Sicherheitsrat der Vereinten Nationen hat am (heutigen) Donnerstag das voraussichtlich letzte Mandat für den ISAF-Einsatz in Afghanistan verabschiedet. Einstimmig beschlossen die Mitglieder des UN-Gremiums die Verlängerung des Auftrags für die International Security Assistance Force bis Ende 2014. Aus der Meldung der UN:
The United Nations Security Council today extended the authorization of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) until the end of 2014, when it is expected that the force will draw down and the Government of Afghanistan will assume full responsibility for security throughout the country. (…)
In a unanimously adopted resolution, the Council welcomed the agreement between the Afghan Government and countries contributing to ISAF to transfer full security responsibility to the authorities by the end of 2014, and the ongoing implementation of the transition process since July 2011.
The 15-member body also called on UN Member States to contribute personnel, equipment and other resources to ISAF and to continue to pursue their efforts to support security, stability and transition in Afghanistan.
In addition, the Council welcomed the strong commitment of the Government to further develop, with the support of ISAF nations, Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) which are “governed by the Afghan Constitution and capable of providing peace, security and stability to all Afghans operating under effective civilian leadership and in accordance with the rule of law, and respecting and promoting human rights, including the rights of women, and capable of contributing to the region’s security through the stabilization of the situation in Afghanistan.”
Wenn ich das richtig sehe, wird jede Aussage, was von internationaler Seite ab 2015 kommt, vom Sicherheitsrat bislang sorgfältig vermieden.
