Afghan police leadership skills being improved: Campbell
KABUL (Pajhwok): NATO Resolute Support top commander in Afghanistan US General John F. Campbell on Wednesday said short training courses at leadership level for Afghan national police had been designed to improve their skills.
Campbell, who called on Chief Executive Officer Abdullah Abdullah at his office in Kabul, said efforts were underway to enhance Afghan forces’ combat ability on the battlefield.
He said Afghan forces had the energy and ability to fight the enemy on their own, but the NATO new mission would continue to assist them in different areas including capacity building and training.
He said special short courses had been designed for Afghan police to help them improve leadership skills.
For his part, Abdullah stressed the need for improvement in the law and order situation of the country besides training, equipping and assisting Afghan forces.
He said though Afghan forces lacked resources, but they could achieve their targets with the available resources through better management and leadership skills.
Abdullah said the government was responsible to protect lives, honour and property of masses, a duty it would perform at any cost.
