The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic congratulates the people of Afghanistan on the successful conduct of the second round of the Presidential elections on 14 June 2014.
The high turnout demonstrates, once again, a significant progress that Afghanistan has achieved in recent years. We highly praise the commitment of the Afghan National Security Forces to provide a safe environment for voters across most of the country. We deeply regret all lives that have been lost despite this effort. We encourage all parties to respect the mandate of electoral institutions and accept final result of the election.
