NATO Ambassadors on Afghanistan visit to discuss RS mission
The party included Ambassador Martin Erdmann of Germany, Ambassador Mariangela Zappia of Italy, Ambassador Fatih Ceylan of Turkey, and Ambassador Douglas Lute of the United States, said a statement from RS.
These four Allied nations serve as “framework nations” for the Resolute Support.
During the visit, the ambassadors met with President Ghani and Chief Executive Abdullah, and Afghan officials and allied troops in Kabul, Herat, and Mazar-e-Sharif.
At the NATO Summit in September 2014, the 28 allies and their troop contributing partners reaffirmed their commitment to the Afghan people. Resolute Support is a non-combat NATO-led mission to train, advise, and assist the Afghan forces and institutions.
The mission was launched on January 1, 2015, at the invitation of the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, immediately following the completion of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) mission. Today, more than 40 nations are participating in the mission.
