Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 29.09.2019

We are pleased to observe that the Presidential elections in Afghanistan were held in a relatively secure atmosphere on 28 September 2019.

We hope that the elections will bring an administration that embraces all segments of Afghan people and will provide a new momentum for efforts towards a lasting and just peace.

We hope that the candidates will exercise common sense and restraint until the Independent Election Commission announces the final results.

Having always shown respect for the political choices of the Afghan people, Turkey will continue to provide every support for the establishment of a lasting democracy and stability in friendly and brotherly Afghanistan, as it has done so thus far.
