Some 100 nations and organizations met here to plan a transition beyond the withdrawal of American and other international forces from Afghanistan in 2014.
Pakistan boycotted the conference to protest U.S. air strike that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers along the rough border with Afghanistan.
Participating nations were to pledge their support for an inclusive Afghan-led reconciliation process on condition that any outcome must reject violence, terrorism and endorse the Afghan constitution and its guarantee of human rights.
“The entire region has a stake in Afghanistan’s future and much to lose if the country again becomes a source of terrorism and instability,” Clinton told the delegates.
Iran stands ready to support Afghanistan and an Afghan-led reconciliation process, Salehi said, while strongly condemning the idea of any military bases remaining after 2014.
