LASHKARGAH (PANinfo-icon): A group of representatives from NATOinfo-icon member countries on Wednesday paid a brief visit to southern Helmand province, an official said.

The visiting team included delegates from the US, Germany, Spain, Southern Korea, Turkey and Italy. They also met with Governor Mohammad Gulab Mangal, a statement from the governor’s house said.

The visit was aimed at assessing the current security situation as well as well as seeking ways to compensate the weaknesses in the province after security responsibilities were  handed over from international troops to their Afghan counterparts on July 20 handover, the statement said.

The delegation also talked about the second phase of security transfer scheduled to be carried out in September and October.

NATO had various achievements as well as some weaknesses in the province, which were also discussed during the visit, it added.

It was the first such visit of a joint delegation from NATO-allied countries to Helmand.
