Need for smart environmental solutions underlined
At Monday’s workshop, acting Minister of Defense Masoom Stanikzai said: “The environment is an inheritance from our ancestors and we must make it better for future generations.”
The Ministry of Defence hosted the three-day event, which Combined Security Transition Command-Afghanistan coordinated to serve as a platform to engage Afghan National Defence and Security Forces, coalition and international environmental leaders.
In a statement from Resolute Support Mission, CSTC-A commanderMaj. Gen. Gordon said: “Smart, sustainable environmental solutions mean strengthened economic security.”
Economic security in turn led to increased national and regional security, he said. “As we share, engage and discuss Afghan environmental procedures and coalition best practices, we are making Afghanistanand the worldstronger, saferand sustainable.”
