Ambassador Tarzi emphasized that Security is the main challenge of preserving the achievements of Afghanistan and continues to be the main factor for the development of the country, and the Government of Afghanistan, together with its international partners, has had many social, political and economic gains in the last 12 years.
The aim of the IOM report was to provide national, regional and international policy makers an insight on the transitions in Afghanistan over the next years, including internal and external migration consequences, and to identify strategic priorities for IOM and its partners.
The key message of the report was to bear in mind the young generations’ optimistic view about the future of Afghanistan, despite multiple challenges, and the need for additional support from the International Community during the transition period.
