Readout of President Obama’s Call with President Karzai

Washington, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–June 24, 2010.

In a call yesterday, President Obama informed President Karzai of his decision to accept General Stanley McChrystal’s resignation  and his intent to nominate General David Petraeus to assume command of the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan.  Both leaders expressed admiration and praise for General McChrystal’s leadership and service over the past year.  President Obama underscored that this personnel change in no way impacts United States policy in Afghanistan or the level of our commitment to Afghanistan’s future.  The President also emphasized that the United States and Afghanistan must continue to work together to sustain the momentum against the Taliban building on the constructive VTC that the two leaders held yesterday.  President Karzai welcomed the nomination of General Petraeus and assured President Obama that he would take all steps necessary to support a successful transition.
