President Karzai made his commitment to political reform and tackling corruption, including the appointment of clean and competent Ministers and governors, clear in his inauguration speech of 19 November 2009. We welcome the emphasis he placed on the need for Ministers to have integrity and professionalism, and look forward to the announcement of his Cabinet. We regularly discuss the need to tackle corruption with the Afghan Government and offer technical support, for example in providing a multi-agency task force to support the implementation of an anti-corruption strategy.
