International Conference on Afghanistan opens in Bonn

Ten years after the 2001 Petersberg Conference, States haveĀ re-convened in Bonn to deliberate on the future of Afghanistan after the foreign troop withdrawal scheduled for 2014. While about 100 countries are attending the conference, Pakistan, one of the key players in the region, is boycotting the conference in protestĀ of a NATO attack on a border checkpoint last month.
