Graham: Afghan Elections Must Proceed As Planned

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on upcoming elections in Afghanistan.

“It is very important that Afghan national elections proceed as planned in September. The democratic process will give Afghanistan a new partner to work with the United States and the international community to make sure Afghanistan continues to move forward as the country embraces democracy. I strongly urge the Trump Administration and the international community to support these elections to ensure they succeed in the face of terror. My thoughts and prayers are with the Afghan people as they bravely chart a new course for their nation and firmly reject terrorism.”
