PARIS (AP) - The leaders of Britain, France and Germany are urging the United Nations to press ahead with plans to convene a major international conference on Afghanistan's future.
Britain's Gordon Brown, France's Nicolas Sarkozy and Germany's Angela Merkel have sent a letter to U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon calling for the meeting to discuss the aftermath of the country's elections.
The three leaders call in the letter for "new prospects and goals" in Afghanistan on governance, law, security, and economic and social development.
The letter was made public by the French president's office on Wednesday. It was dated Tuesday.
