The United States is Committed to a Long-Term Diplomatic Presence in Mazar-e Sharif
May 7, 2012
The United States is committed to a long-term diplomatic presence in Mazar-e-Sharif. There is already a robust U.S. diplomatic presence in the City and we are evaluating our options as to how and when a permanent U.S. diplomatic presence will be established.
Consistent with our regular procedures worldwide, we constantly evaluate the security situation throughout Afghanistan and change our assessments, plans, and practices as required to protect our employees and facilities. The security situation has evolved in Afghanistan and any decisions we make are driven by our responsibility to ensure the safety of our personnel.
