The Security Council reiterated its support for the Bonn Agreement and its commitment to assist the Afghan people in bringing stability and peace to the country and respect for human rights. It welcomed the holding of an emergency loya jirga from 11 to 19 June 2002 and noted the large participation of women.[2] Furthermore, it encouraged the Afghan people to determine their own political future, welcomed the election of Hamid Karzai as head of state and establishment of the Transitional Authority. All Afghan groups were urged to co-operate with the new authority and for the Transitional Authority to build on the efforts of the Interim Administration with regard to women and girls and education for children and to eradicate the annual poppy crop.

The resolution commended the efforts of the United Nations in supporting the roles of the Afghan people, United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan and the Special Representative of the Secretary-General Lakhdar Brahimi, and the International Security Assistance Force for providing a secure environment. It called for greater international support and assistance in the Afghan process and to the large number of Afghan refugees and internally displaced persons.[3]
