(OSRSG-CAAC) – The United Nations today welcomed the Government of Afghanistan’s commitment to end and prevent the recruitment of children in the Afghan national security forces. The Afghan Government recently reconfirmed its commitment with the endorsement of a ‘Road Map Towards Compliance,’ which details 15 measures to fully implement an Action Plan signed with the United Nations in 2011. The road map was supported by the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in their roles as co-chairs of the UN-led Country Task Force on Children and Armed Conflict.
