"What we have to be able to do is to make certain that we can fulfill all of the requirements. We can't just fulfill the requirements having to do with reconstruction and development. We can't just fulfill the requirements that have to do with governance and rule of law. We can't just fufill the requirements that have to deal with the hearts and minds of the population.
