Ambassador Holbrooke recently returned from his seventh trip this year to Afghanistan and Pakistan, which also that included stops in Central Asia – the first visits in his capacity as SRAP - as well as Georgia and Germany. The trip was focused on strengthening dialogue, developing further partnerships, consolidating support and deepening further regional linkage. We are connected by a common threat and common challenge and therefore a common purpose. Peace and security in the region depends on regional cooperation and rebuilding Afghanistan as a secure and stable state.
