In the wake of the impending withdrawal of international forces from Afghanistan this year, the conveners of four policy groups from the countries neighbouring Afghanistan presented a joint declaration here on Thursday. The document suggests recommendations for the governments to ensure better regional cooperation with Afghanistan through constructive efforts.
The two day seminar titled “Peace and Stability in Afghanistan’s Region: 2014 and beyond” was organized by Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Pakistan (FES) in collaboration with Governance and Policy Advisers. Keeping in mind the incumbent non-effective regional structure, experts present at the event felt that such an initiative may be last-minute, but is still the need of the hour.
