"Civilian and military, Afghan and international, we are part of one team with one mission," Petraeus told about 1,700 people at the U.S. embassy in his first public comments since taking the helm, CNN reported.

In battle against Taliban insurgents, the general said: "On this important endeavor, cooperation is not optional."

Petraeus's first day in charge was marked by militant violence. Militants killed at least five people and wounded 20 others at the compound of a U.S. aid agency subcontractor in the northern city of Kunduz, CNN reported.

Against that backdrop and what military officials see as a tough road ahead, Petraeus said: "I'm reminded we must achieve unity of effort and common purpose."

A ceremony Sunday will mark the formal handover from Gen. Stanley McChrystal, forced out for remarks he and his aides made to a reporter for Rolling Stone about President Barack Obama and other U.S. civilian leaders.
