Afghanistan remains one of the UK’s top foreign policy priorities. The key political focus for Afghanistan in 2009 is the presidential and provincial council elections which will take place on 20 August 2009. We are actively working in support of the Afghans, the UN and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation’s International Security Assistance Force to help ensure these elections are successful.
