Message from the EUPOL Head of Mission on the occasion of the International Day of Peace

Kabul, 21 September 2016. EUPOL wishes Afghanistan a peaceful celebration of the International Day of Peace. Today recognizes the values of non-violence and harmonious co-existence and especially promotes ceasefire efforts globally.

“I believe the police has a crucial role to play in bringing about peace. The police should not only be developed after peace has been established,” said the EUPOL Head of Mission Ms. Pia Stjernvall.

“Attaining genuine peace requires sustained effort. We stand with you in the pursuit of peace.”

EUPOL will continue working together with its Afghan partners to promote the rule of law and human rights through supporting the development of a police force that serves the interests of Afghan citizens with commitment and integrity.
Happy International Day of Peace!
