E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: OEXC PREL SOCI UNESCO AF
SUBJECT: AFGHAN ATTENDANCE AT UNESCO CONFERENCE: YOUTH AT
THE CROSSROADS - A FUTURE WITHOUT VIOLENT RADICALIZATION

REF: A. 08 STATE 46958
B. 08 STATE 46755

1. (U) This is an action request. See paragraph 3.

2. (U) The Afghan Ministry of Education nominated Kabul
University Acting Chancellor Professor Mokamel Alkozai to
participate in the UNESCO conference in Bahrain June 15-17:
Youth at the Crossroads - A Future without Violent
Radicalization (REF A). Given continuing reports that
extremists are recruiting on the Kabul University campus, we
strongly support his attendance. We believe it would be in
the USG's interest to have a well-placed Kabul University
campus official participate in a solutions-oriented, best
practices conference.

3. (U) The Afghan Government does not have the money to send
Professor Alkozai to the conference. We request the
Department consider funding Professor Alkozai's travel and
accommodation expenses.
