Afghan women legislators meet at NATO

BRUSSELS, Feb. 25 (UPI) -- A delegation of women representatives from Afghanistan's Parliament concluded a visit to NATO headquarters Wednesday after holding meetings on Afghan stability.

The high-level delegation, which included representatives of the upper and lower houses of Afghanistan's National Assembly, conducted three days of meetings with NATO officials aimed at discussing the role of Afghan women in supporting stability in the country, NATO reported.


Officials said the meetings were part of an ongoing NATO initiative to "engage women in a constructive dialogue on issues related to the stability, reconstruction and development of Afghanistan," the release said.

At the top of the priority list for the meetings were continuing discussions on the Bucharest Summit Declaration, which outlined short- and long-term strategic-policy goals of NATO's International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan, among other initiatives.
