KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): In line with the government's priorities, steps would be taken to let Afghan security forces conduct night-time operations, NATOinfo-icon's new commander promised on Wednesday.

International Assistance Security Assistance Force (ISAFinfo-icon) commander Gen. John Allen, who replaced Gen. David Petraeus two days back, held out the assurance at a meeting with President Hamid Karzai.

The overall security situation in the country and along the Afghanistaninfo-icon-Pakistaninfo-icon border, known as Durand Lineinfo-icon, came under discussion at the meeting, a statement from Karzai's office said.
