(Paris, July 04, 2012)
France welcomes the decision of Pakistan to reopen the Gound Lines of Communication. This decision enables the members of ISAF to move ahead with the process of transition in Afghanistan. It should also facilitate the progressive withdrawal of the Coalition forces until 2014.
Pakistan plays a pivotal role in the stability and security of Afghanistan. Its decision reinforces the needed cooperation between States in the region and ISAF members to pursue this objective.
