The Bonn Agreement

A nationally agreed Government would require the convening of at least one loya jirga; However, in the absence of law and order after the rapid victory of the North American and Afghan Alliance forces, immediate action was deemed necessary. A 12-page document entitled “Afghanistan`s Bonn Agreement: A Catalog of Missed Opportunities,” released today by Human Rights Watch, analyzes the situation in the country one year after the agreement formalizing the end of Taliban rule. The briefing paper outlines a number of areas where the Afghan government and international actors have missed opportunities to improve security and protect human rights. Human Rights Watch makes several recommendations to international and Afghan actors to implement key provisions of the agreement. The Governments of the Kingdom of Belgium, the Kingdom of Denmark, the French Republic, the Federal Republic of Germany, the Republic of Ireland, the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the Kingdom of Norway, the Kingdom of Sweden, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the European Union shall be signatories. .
