KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Afghans and foreign soldiers have been able to cripple the Al Qaeda network in the region and weaken the Talibaninfo-icon-led insurgency, the ISAFinfo-icon commander said on Thursday.

Joint efforts were being made to promote the conditions necessary for a stable and free Afghanistaninfo-icon, the top US commander in Afghanistan, Gen. John Allen, said in a message on the eve of country's Independence Day. 

On behalf of the NATOinfo-icon International Security Assistance Force, he wished Afghans a joyous celebration during the Independence Day holiday. "I express my heartfelt appreciation to all Afghans faithfully serving their country..."

Earlier in the year, Afghan forces began assuming primary security responsibility from ISAF in several areas throughout the country. The Afghan forces would be trained, equipped and made capable of independently defeating the insurgents, he said.

He added: "I look forward to the continued progress that will be made through 2014 and beyond, as the nations of ISAF remain forever faithful hamkar to the Afghan people, and we will continue to support a free and stable Afghanistan."
