United Kingdom: Counter-Terrorism and Transnational Organized Crime [0.5]
The G8’s Camp David Declaration takes a strong stance against transnational organized crime and terror networks. It mentions the importance of curtailing organized crime networks to ensuring political stability in regions like Afghanistan and the African Sahel. In a section called “Afghanistan’s Economic Transition,” the Camp David Declaration reaffirmed the G8’s support for the Kabul Process and the Bonn Conference outcomes, both of which emphasize the need for political and economic stability in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region. However, no new initiatives are proposed. The Camp David Declaration merely reaffirms existing resolutions and initiatives, and leaves it to the Tokyo Conference in July 2012 to generate new long-term commitments for Afghanistan’s stability.
