The United Nations has unveiled plans to hold a summit in Afghanistan early next year. The summit aims to tackle political and economic issues in the strife-torn country.

For UN officials, this gathering is an attempt to unite the next Afghan government with its international partners.

The country held elections last month, with partial results favoring President Hamid Karzai for re-election. The summit is likely to be held in the Afghan capital of Kabul, but details are still being worked out.
