    KABUL, Afghanistan — Following the call from the government of Afghanistan for a Day of Peace, the International Security Assistance Force will suspend offensive operations during the election.

    In support of the Afghan national security forces who lead the security efforts during the electoral process, only those operations that are deemed necessary to protect the population will be conducted on that day.

    "Our efforts alongside our Afghan security partners will focus on protecting the people of Afghanistan from the insurgents so that the population can freely exercise their right to choose their next president and their provincial representatives," said Brigadier General Eric Tremblay, ISAF spokesperson.

    ISAF remains fully committed to the international community's engagement in Afghanistan, assisting the Afghan authorities in providing security and stability to create the conditions for progress, reconstruction and development to take place for the benefit of all Afghans.
