Mandate for UN mission in Afghanistan expires

The mandate for the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) expires. Very likely, the mandate is extended.

UNAMA is a political mission, currently led by the Slovak diplomat Ján Kubiš, which was originally established by the Security Council in 2002. It coordinates UN activities in Afghanistan, works for the protection of human rights, and helps organize elections.

Most recently, UNAMA's mandate was renewed in March 2012, and it is envisaged it will help organize Afghan elections in 2014.
