Tageszeitung (Berlin)/Afghanistan Zhaghdablai, 5 December 2014

Guest article by AAN’s Thomas Ruttig at Berlin’s daily taz, looking at expectations from the London conference (no new pledges; reform signal of presenting new ministers missed). Struggle about new cabinet ongoing, although Ghani has set some signs with first non-ministerial appointments and first steps of renewing civilian and military provincial administrations in Helmand, Kunduz, Badghis, Nangrahar, Ghazni – with appointing an new Kunduz governor and reacting to latest Kabul terror wave by replacing the Kabul police chief.
