Our friendship and cooperation is bound by the principles of unity and sovereignty, ensuring equality under the rule of law, on the basis of the Afghan constitution. Democracy, transparent elections and development are cornerstones of EU's presence in Afghanistan and we remain united in our struggle for human and civil rights and in particular the rights of women and girls. Stressing the need for an immediate and lasting reduction in violence, the EU will accompany actively the negotiations aiming at achieving the peace the people of Afghanistan deserve and have long demanded.
